DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (May 17, 2012) - Lloyd Brothers Motorsports, Inc. with support from Foremost Insurance Company, Saddlemen and AMA Pro Racing is pleased to announce participation in an exciting fundraiser for the Roadracing World Action Fund. Throughout the 2012 AMA Pro Flat Track season, the Lloyd Brothers Motorsports team will be volunteering efforts to raise money for the Roadracing World Action Fund, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization which advocates and promotes the use of soft barriers to help prevent rider injuries at racetracks.
The first-prize winner of the fundraiser will receive a 2009 Buell Ulysses XB12XP - AMA Pro Road Racing Pace Motorcycle, donated by AMA Pro Racing, and the second-place prizewinner will receive a new custom Saddlemen seat donated by Tom Seymour of Saddlemen. The motorcycle will be transported, displayed and have tickets sold by Lloyd Brothers Motorsports at each of this season's half-mile and mile AMA Pro Flat Track races.
"The safety of our competitors is of paramount importance to us, and a key to building the sport of flat track racing," said Dan Johnsen, Director of Flat Track for AMA Pro Racing. "We are very thankful for the commitment and support that Lloyd Brothers Motorsports has shown to our paddock by taking part in a second consecutive year of fundraising in support of the Roadracing World Action Fund."
"We are excited to continue to help raise funds for flat track Airfence," stated Lloyd Brothers Motorsports co-owner Michael Lloyd. "Airfence is invaluable to the safety of racers. We are really hoping that the racing community will continue to rally around this cause so that we can expand the amount of Airfence available for the safety of our racers."
"Foremost Insurance Company is proud to support the efforts of Lloyd Brothers Motorsports. Foremost Insurance and Lloyd Brothers Motorsports share common interests in not only striving to be the best but also to help create the safest environment possible for our participants and clients," said Randy Slotten, of Foremost Insurance Company.
