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
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.
