The Sidecar Racers Association-West will be racing with AFM at Buttonwillow on October 20th. It has been brought to my attention that a small fundraising event will be happening that Saturday.

Drivers will be taking folks for taxi rides during lunch time for a $20.00 minimum donation, which of course will go the the James Cornell Fund.

Please feel free to come down to B-Willow and watch the races on Saturday and AFM on Sunday. Motels are cheap and the drive is relatively short compared to other tracks. Buttonwillow is south on I-5 just adjacent to the Bakersfield/Hwy58 cutoff. Driving time is about 3 hours or less (depending on how you drive! Very Happy).

Sidecars will do taxi rides around noon and race around 4pm on Saturday. Hope to see you there!

I've gotten confirmation that there will be 11 rigs at the race this weekend, so a very good opportunity to get a ride around the track! Come find out what made James love sidecar passengering!

Hope to see you there!

We had 22 people participate in the taxi rides and managed to raise approximately $600-$700 for James. A lot of people wanted to donate, but didn't want to jump on the back, so that was very generous! We also got a great donation from some of the local clubs that participate in the MBCOC at the last meeting before the race. So, people who weren't even there were wanting to pitch in which is a great feeling and just goes to show how many lives James has touched over the years in all facets of motorcycling!

Thanks to all the donated and hope you had a great time!
