Mushin Racing / Red
Bud MX Share The Passion
As an extra added benefit, the
crowd on hand got to watch the 50cc Limited
class compete on the Red Bud/KTM Mini track for
their second moto.
It wasn't as easy as it looked
as youthful ATV racers chased 1, 5 and 10 dollar
bills in the confines of the Mushin Racing money
machine manned by team members who were eager to
offer advice on how to best grab the cash.
The limbo contest for both
youths and adults capped off the evening.
Although the rules were sometimes bent to accomodate those with less limber limbs, the
general consensus was that testing your
flexibility with the chance to reap a hand full
of cash was just what the crowd needed before
making their way back to their pits to prepare
for Sunday's second round of motos at Red Bud.
Reynoldsburg, Ohio / August 3, 2010 / When a
person possesses the talents to make more than
just a buck or two in his business life and
along with that gift possesses a passion for the
sport of ATV racing, you have a man who is not
afraid to share not only his wealth but his
passion for the sport. Scott Ward of
Reynoldsburg, Ohio and the owner of this year's
newly formed Mushin Racing Pro, Amateur and
Youth team, just happens to be one of those kind
of men. With the desire to make ATV racing one
of the most prominent motorsports in the nation,
Ward understands that what you put into
something you get back and that people are the
most important part of any given sport.
During Round 10 of the 2010 AMA-ATV Motocross
Championship, Ward along with the Ritchie
family, promoters of the Red Bud Motocross
facility, offered up a Saturday evening filled
with money machines, bike races, limbo contest
and other activities. When all was said and
done, the racers, families and friends who
attended this Saturday evening gathering had
smiles on their faces, a few bucks in their
pockets, and a common agreement that the
activities that Scott Ward and the Ritchie
family had put together were the best they'd
ever attended at a national motocross event.
All in all, Ward and the Ritchies gave away
$3000 in cash and enough prizes to bring the
total to around $5000.
The event, tagged as the "Mushin Racing/Red Bud
Stimulus Package" attracted well over 1000
people and everyone was ready to race on Sunday
after enjoying this Saturday evening
extravaganza. To cap off their generosity, Ward
and the Ritchie's also made a generous donation
to long time ATV racer Todd Macke to help him
continue his efforts to help those with
disabilities enjoy riding and racing ATVs.
