Huff Motorsports MPH for Children's


Sunday was a fun day for Steve Huff and the Huff Motorsports Top Fuel Harley race team and they weren't even at a race track. The team spent Sunday in Tacoma WA at Destination Harley. It was the Destination Harley Blues Festival featuring a number of bands, great food, a beer garden, silent auction and the staff from Children's Hospital signing up riders for The Children's Ride that will be held on June 29th. The event was put on to raise money for Children's Hospital in Seattle and all of the days proceeds went to Children's.

The Huff Motorsports team came up with an idea and brought out the race team and bike to get it started. The idea.. MPH for Children's. The AHDRA will be hosting the Kresto Pacific Nationals at Pacific Raceways in Kent WA on the weekend of June 28th-29th and the Children's Ride destination is the racetrack for a day of AHDRA racing action on Sunday, the 29th. The Huff Motorsports team is going to make qualifying that weekend a bit more interesting. On the Saturday the 28th the team will get 3 qualifying passes and they will use their best MPH to collect on pledges being made by the community. The Huff Motorsports team is taking an idea similar to the "walk-a-thon" pledge idea but doing it with MPH. If a person or company wants to pledge $1.00 per MPH they will simply pay based on Steve's best pass on Saturday, if he goes 208 MPH they will pay $208.00. There is no minimum or maximum to pledge but remember Steve's average for 2003 has been over 201 MPH with the best being 206.

"I think this will be a lot of fun", said Huff, "It will give a lot of people who don't ride a chance to get behind this event and raise money for a great cause." If you or anyone you know are interested in making a pledge just go to www.huffmotorsports.com for contact instructions or simply e-mail huffmotorsports@attbi.com with your name, telephone number and pledge amount. The results will be posted on the website and an e-mail reminder will be sent to you after the race. Huff added, "I'm really fortunate to be doing what I do and sometimes we take things like that for granted. Giving back to the community like this and seeing the kids get something out of it is one of the most rewarding things a person can do not to mention it is a great incentive for our team to try and improve on our 206 MPH personal best and raise a lot of money for Children's."

The Huff Motorsports team is heading out to Denver for the AHDRA Thunder Mountain Nitro Nationals next week then it's off to Dallas
for the AHDRA American Iron Horse Nationals before returning to Seattle. "It's a busy month and still without any primary sponsor I really have to thank all of our associate sponsors for helping us stay on the track and get involved with these children's charities", added Huff.
