WORTHAM, TX – The RiderDown Foundation (RDF) announced today they will be hosting a fundraising and informational booth Memorial Day weekend during the Lucas Oil AMA Motocross Championship at Freestone County Raceway in Wortham, Texas on May 27-30, 2011. The RiderDown Foundation is a non-profit organization that helps off road riders of all types when they are injured while doing what they love. The RiderDown staff consists of a group of volunteers that graciously donate their time and energy when help is needed most.
RiderDown is thrilled that Tony Miller of Freestone County Raceway has invited them to the Lucas Oil AMA Nationals again this year. Tony has been a huge supporter of the RiderDown Foundation. His efforts and help in bringing awareness and donations to the cause have been greatly appreciated.
“I think the 2011 National at Freestone is set for a new level of success.” says Mr. Miller. “With the event on Memorial weekend, it allows spectators plenty of time for travel, including trips with their RVs to camp. We have plenty of amateur racing set for the weekend with a Night Race on Friday, May 27th, the National on Saturday May 28th, then back to amateur racing Sunday through Monday, May 29th and30th. There is a vintage race on a new track, a cross country race set with a 5 mile course thru the ranch, the Women’s Amateur Championship – the WMA Cup and Amateur Day all held on the National Track.” According to Tony, “We have something for everyone and we’re very pleased that RiderDown will be a part of this exciting weekend.”
The RiderDown Foundation has helped out hundreds of injured off road riders and their families when they needed it most. Come by and visit the booth to find out more about RiderDown and the various ways for you to get involved and show your support. There will be a silent auction with some great stuff from a number of riders and industry sponsors. RDF will have t-shirts, hats and wristbands available.
