Racebike Being Raffled To Benefit Mid-Atlantic Road Racing Club Injured Rider Fund

Here's your chance to win an iconic, fully prepped race bike AND to help out the Mid Atlantic Road Racing Club's Injured Member Fund!

The IMF was established to help alleviate the burdens that a MARRC member faces from injuries sustained while participating as a racer, cornerworker, or racing official in a sanctioned road racing event. The IMF committee, upon receipt of a nomination, can approve and allocate up to $500 per member per incident toward the injured member's expenses. Since the fund was instituted in 2001, over 25 members have received such assistance.

To continue helping those in need, MARRC is seeking donations to the fund. Adam Wentling of Chief Wildman's Racing is putting up his iconic "Al Wilcox Tribute Motorcycle" for raffle, and wants to donate the proceeds to the IMF!

Adam is offering one hundred tickets at $100 apiece; he plans to have the drawing and make the donation at the 2013 MARRC Annual Meeting and Awards Banquet in February (tentative date 23 February 2013; please check or the MARRC Facebook page for updates).

This bike was featured in the April 2012 issue of Motorcyclist Magazine.
