3J's Track Days Hosts Event to Benefit Needy Youth Groups, AFM Air Fence Fund in March
SONOMA, Calif. (March 10, 2008) - 3J's Motorcycle Track Days will host a fund-raiser on Monday, March 31, at Infineon Raceway, with proceeds benefiting both Speedway Children's Charities and the AFM Air Fence Fund. The event will kick-off Two Wheel Thunder bike week in Sonoma.
Jere Starks, vice president of facilities at Infineon Raceway, runs the 3J's Motorcycle Track Days program, and since its inception in 2003, the organization has distributed nearly than $200,000 to many worthy causes, including $135,000 to rider Vincent Haskovec, who was injured during an AMA weekend at Infineon Raceway in 2005. Starks created the 3J's concept with long-time friend Jim Randolph.
The March event will feature an open motorcycle track day over the twisting road course, sumptuous lunch, T-shirt and raffle, with all proceeds benefiting needy youth organizations in Sonoma County and the Airfence Fund. Cost is $225 (does not include raffle); to register please call Jenah Smith at 707-933-3990 or visit www.3jstrackdays.com.
"This is the only 3J's event for 2008, so we hope to attract a number of riders who would otherwise never get to ride their motorcycles on our world-famous road course," Starks said.
The festivities will continue into the evening hours at Infineon Raceway with a Spaghetti Feed and Auction, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Cost is $50 for the dinner ($25 if you participated in the 3J's day) or $500 for a table of 10. There will be entertainment, as well as a live auction.
One of the highlights of the day will be a drawing for a new Suzuki GSX-R750 motorcycle. Tickets will be sold all day for $50 each, with the winner announced shortly after dinner. Only 200 tickets will be sold for the Suzuki drawing. To purchase tickets for the drawing in advance call Denise Silver at 707-933-3950 or email email@example.com.
