$5900 raised for Air Fence!

The weather and the economy didn't make for an ideal event but a great turnout and allot of generous NESBA members reaching deep into their pockets raised $5900 for the Roadracing World Action Fund for Air Fence at NESBA's annual chili cook off at Blackhawk Farms.

14 different cooks entered a chili into the cook off and it was a close vote with NESBA member Stephen Pauls coming out on top. Immediately following the chili cook off there was a raffle for donated items from NESBA members, Yoshimura Suzuki, Big Meanie Motorsports and Turn One Racing. Several items donated by NESBA member Butch Frye were auctioned off in addition to the raffle.

NESBA Asst. Director Fred Duncan who presided over the event said "The NESBA Midwest Members are a fantastic group of people and I'm proud to spend my weekends with them at the track. Every year I'm just amazed at how our members come together for the chili cook off...itís just an awesome event"

Over $15,700 has been raised for the Roadracing World Action Fund through donations from NESBA members at Blackhawk Farms events throughout the last three years. Many thanks to all those who donated to this great cause.

Air Fence is a giant pre-inflated air bag positioned in front of hard objects around a racetrack.

"I hit it unbelievable hard, and probably wouldn't be here if it wasn't for that Air Fence," - John Haner

Awesome job on this Brian! You and Todd were great at the event. It was VERY well run, and I just can't say enough about how impressed I was with the whole thing.

Thanks for all the work that you put into this. 5 sections of AirBag is a huge deal and potentially can save some serious injuries or even a life or two.

Thanks again

Its pretty much a group effort with everyone pitching in a little to make a great event. Chad Trank actually did most of the organizing of the actual event....he did a great job too!

Thanks though...it was a great time just hanging out and talking with everyone again...haven't laughed that hard in a while.

I agree with this statement wholeheartedly. I am afraid to think how bad I or my bike would be if I didn't hit that airfence.
