AMA Awards Banquet Charity Tournament Benefits Motocrossers Only

© 2001, Roadracing World Publishing, Inc.


The charity golf tournament held in conjunction with the annual AMA Pro Racing Awards Banquet will benefit a fund which works exclusively with injured professional motocrossers.

According to an October 8 AMA Pro Racing press release announcing scheduling of the banquet, “Following the banquet will be a day of golf, benefiting the Road 2 Recovery Foundation, which helps pro riders who suffer career-threatening injuries while racing. The Road 2 Recovery Foundation is dedicated to providing financial, motivational, emotional and spiritual support to AMA licensed members in the event of a career-ending injury.”

The release makes no mention of the fact that the Foundation works with injured Pro motocrossers ONLY, and, by using the terms “pro riders” and “AMA licensed members” instead of “pro motocrossers”, actually creates the opposite impression.
