A new fundraiser featuring 20

Peter Lenz Memorial Athletic Field at St. Joseph’s Catholic School in Vancouver,
racing legend Peter Lenz passed away at Indianapolis Motor Speedway after a
tragic racing crash on August 29th 2010 that sent the entire
motorcycle racing community worldwide into shock.
students and parents from St. Joseph’s Catholic School, (Peter’s Grad School)
decided to honor their fallen angel and his zest for life with a memorial
athletic field. Since then, they, with the support of many in the racing
community, have collected nearly 2/3rds of the $200,000 needed to build the
multi-lane running track and grass athletic field in his name.
2014 Fundraiser for the Peter Lenz Memorial Athletic Field was put together to
honor the unique relationship between Peter and his trusted mascot, Dynee with
the ultimate goal of raising the remaining $75,000 needed to make the Athletic
Field a reality.
“Dynee is and shall forever
be Peter Lenz’s best mate. They travelled the world together, spending
more time together than any boy and dinosaur in history.” Michael Lenz.
Peter featured Dynee on his
race bike and his leathers. Dynee was often seen around the paddock,
hanging out on a fence near the track, or perched in the trailer, excitedly
watching Peter race.
the past few months, young riders that either knew Peter, raced with Peter or
were inspired by the incredible young man were asked to describe their own
mascot, a loved family pet, a creature that best fits their personality,
or even a younger sibling. Each rider described their own best pal and
how they would help and support them on race day.
young riders participated and motorcycle racing “trading cards” in
their likeness have been created to feature each unique rider and mascot while
paying tribute to Peter Lenz and the greatest mascot in the history of
