Morgantown, W. Va. (August 20, 2012) - The ATVPG is pleased to announce the success of this year's 88 Live to Ride Benefit Auction, held at the final round of the 2012 AMA ATV Motocross National Championship Series at Loretta Lynn's. Kicking off with a spaghetti dinner on Friday evening, the night's auction raised an all-time high of over $33,000 for 88 Live to Ride, Inc.

Debi Bartosek, President of 88 Live to Ride, said, "I would like to thank everyone who attended the dinner and auction at Loretta's. Special thanks to ITP and Root River Racing for sponsoring the dinner, and to Stan "Big Daddy" Digby and his family for preparing and serving up the delicious spaghetti dinner."

There was a wide and varied list of items to be auctioned and guest auctioneer, Rodney Tomblin, used his experience on the microphone to coax higher bids out of the audience. Some of the more memorable items were the hand crocheted blanket with AMA ATVMX Emblem, made by Jen Richards, that topped out at $3,000; Joel Hetrick race gear that went for $2,000; Jeremiah Jones jersey $1,650; PEP shocks $2,000; John Natalie one day riding school, jersey and a day of boating $3,650 and of course, the Podium Backdrop which fetched a whopping $8,000. All in all, this was the best auction ever raising over $33,000 for 88 Live to Ride, Inc.

The auction wouldn't be possible without the help of dedicated volunteers - sincere thanks to: Erica, Chris & McKenna Peters; Lisa & Maci Devenport; Freida Rozelle; Missy & Maddie Guyer; Laura & Jeff Rastrelli and Debi Bartosek.
