Widow Of WERA Racer Chad Sisler Planning To Race In His Memory

The Widow of WERA Racer Chad Sisler Would Like to Thank Everyone for Their Donations to Roadracing World's Action Fund, Teams up to Race in 2010.

Shiloh Sisler, whose husband was killed on June 7, 2009 in an on-track accident at Summit Point Raceway, recently learned of the Airfence soft barriers that were delivered to Summit in Chad Sisler's memory. Shiloh was overwhelmed to hear this news and was at a loss for words; "Besides the fact that I can't stop crying right now -- tears of happiness -- that really is amazing."

She wishes that Chad could see everything. "Nobody really knew us and yet everyone pulled together and let me know that I have a huge backbone behind me in this community." Shiloh thanks everyone for all of their helpful words during this difficult time.

This past year has undoubtedly been a challenging one for Shiloh . Recently she said she "is actually doing pretty good" and has been preparing for 2010, her first season of racing. She will race her GSXR 600 in Chad's memory. For 2010, Shiloh will be teaming up with WERA racer Katie Bladon and racing under the team name of Krazypants Racing. Shiloh anticipates having a great time during her first year on the track!

Raising awareness about on-track safety continues to be important to Shiloh . She is appreciative of everyone donating to Roadracing World's Action Fund after Chad passed away, but is hoping that donations will be made proactively. Instead of waiting for tragedy to strike, as it did for her, before donating to the Action Fund, she is urging people to donate now in the off season and on a continuous basis throughout the year.

Please donate to the Roadracing World Action Fund, a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization that will issue receipts for all donations.
