Chris Ulrich Smashes Records At Charity Ride
AMA Pro Superbike racer Chris Ulrich
broke every charity record at the eighth annual Roadracing World
Action Fund (RWAF) at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California.
Riding a GEICO Suzuki GSX-R1000, Ulrich set a record for two-up
rides by taking 71 passengers around the speedway 213 times,
traversing nearly 500 miles over the course of the day,
According to the news source, the Team M4 Hammer GEICO Suzuki racer broke official records for most laps completed in one and two days with a passenger, as well as the most miles ridden with a passenger in one and two days.
Ulrich also broke another impressive and important record - money raised. The rider brought in $6,314 for his efforts, which is almost $1,500 more than last year. Since the start of the event eight years ago, he has raised more than $27,000 for the RWAF, which provides safety precautions like inflatable guard rails at AMA racing events.
While the event may be over, those who still want to take part in the fundraiser can enter a drawing to take home a prize pack full of motorcycle accessories and ATV gear from sponsors like Lucas Oil.
