Haskovec

Fastrack Riders will stage a Silent Auction to benefit
Vincent Haskovec at their California Speedway AMA Track Day

the auction will be donated to Vincent to assist him with
his recovery.

Almost every road racer on the West Coast knows of Vincent's
plight when he suffered serious spine injuries in a crash at

hospital for additional surgery which was a set major
setback of his recovery process. "Motorcyclist have always
been a benevolent group and help to support fallen riders"
states Larry Pointer V.P. of Operations for Fastrack Riders"
and to that end Fastrack Riders is doing what lot's of other
organizations in our sport have done to assist in some small
way towards Vincent's recovery."

Chris Ulrich from Road Racing World will be providing rides
on a specialty built two seat AMA Superbike. The minimum
donation is $25.00 and the rider will receive a warm up lap
and two hot laps around the California Speedway AMA Track.

Items available in the Silent Auction are:

Shoei helmet

Two autographed lithos provided by Yamaha valued at $1,000
each

One set of Michelin Pilot Power Tires provided by Dale
Keifer from The Racers Edge.

PowerSports Photography is providing a 2' X 3' signed Gold
Model picture.

Race Tech is providing four sets of springs and two gold
valve (front & rear) kits for the auction.

Spectators are welcomed and can participate in the Silent
Auction or just make a cash donation.

That is disappointing. I went to the benefit trackday last July and bought several items, where the proceeds went to Haskovec. I think a lot of the events are being sponsored by very busy people that want to help, but don't have much experience running these kind of events. Hopefully people will continue to try and help dispite a bit frustration.
