Desert Center, CA - On Friday, December 13, 2013 Chuckwalla Valley Raceway will be hosting the Fourth Annual Femmewalla Women’s Track Day event.
Femmewalla was originally envisioned by track owner Aimee Grana back in 2010 after closing the track at the end of a SoCal Track Days event when Aimee asked the staff to stay a few minutes more so she and two of her best girl friends could enjoy the track to themselves. Aimee enjoyed herself so much that she began to organize an annual track day for women only that would foster a safe and non-intimidating way for women to experience riding on a racetrack. At the same time the event could help to raise funds for The Unforgettables Foundation in honor of Micky and Aimee Grana's two-year old daughter, Jessica Hart, who passed away five years ago.
Last year's event attracted nearly 60 lady riders and raised $10,000 for The Unforgettables Foundation, which helps with burial assistance to families who have lost a child. "When you have a child, you think about saving for their college education, not their burial",
stated Aimee in the rider’s meeting. She went on further to say, "I am grateful to have the ability to share a sport that I love so much with other women, I know how intimidating riding on a racetrack can be. I couldn't think of a better way to welcome more women to this
sport while at the same time honor my Unforgettable Jessie by supporting such an incredible cause."
Femmewalla 2013 is poised to be another successful event and is bringing back many of its past year attractions, such as: two up rides from Star School's Jason Pridmore, one-on-one video coaching from Dale Kieffer of Racer's Edge Performance, suspension setup with Randy Acevedo of Inhouse Suspension, and photography services from CaliPhotography. All proceeds from these services will go directly to the charity. The famous Femmewalla raffle is also back with many fantastic raffle prizes provided by the Dainese D-Store of Orange County, Motion Pro, Jason Pridmore's Star School, Cali Photography, Freegun Underwear, Moonstone Wine Cellars, Torco, Leo Vince, and more.
