Mark Your Calendar: Annual Action Fund Two-Up Fundraiser Returning To Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California On Thanksgiving Weekend

AMA Pro National Guard Superbike racer Chris Ulrich poses with two-up passengers and his GEICO Suzuki GSX-R1000 two-seat Superbike.
Chris Ulrich and the Roadracing World Action Fund are holding the Annual Thanksgiving Weekend Two-Up Fundraiser during Fastrack Riders track day events November 24 and 25, 2012 (Saturday and Sunday) at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California.

Two-up rides are available to the public with a minimum donation of $50 to the Roadracing World Action Fund, a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization which advocates and promotes the use of soft barriers to help prevent rider injuries at racetracks nationwide.

Two-up rides on the back of a modified, two-seat AMA Pro National Guard Superbike piloted by Ulrich for two laps around Auto Club Speedway, are a popular way for non-racers and club racers alike to experience the thrill of riding at top speeds on a racebike. Ulrich set a new record in 2009 when he gave 57 two-up rides and completed 180 laps--more than 400 miles--over two days.

Ulrich will be giving two-up rides on his GEICO Suzuki GSX-R1000 Superbike from approximately 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day. Sign-up at the track on the days of the event.

The Roadracing World Action Fund has raised over $700,000 and has deployed soft barriers at road courses and dirt tracks throughout the United States. Hundreds of riders have been "saved" by hitting the soft barriers instead of hard walls after crashing.
