SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (November 4, 2019) – Rookies of ’79 and Friends – the Official Charity of American Flat Track – announced today another fundraising effort to aid injured riders and their families. Due to the extreme generosity of Indian Motorcycle, the Rookies of ’79 and Friends will be raffling off a 2019 FTR 1200 at the conclusion of AFT’s 2020 season.
Rookies of ’79 and Friends is a fan-based, non-profit charity created for the riders by the riders that strives to make an immediate impact on people’s lives and prevent racers from being forced to quit the flat track racing due to injury. Since its inception in 2009, Rookies of ’79 and Friends has raised over $1,000,000 which has allowed the group to help more than 100 injured riders.
Tickets for the FTR 1200 raffle will be available for sale at each of AFT’s events in 2020 and can also be purchased at the Rookies of ’79 website: www.rookies79.com.
There is a $25 entry for each raffle ticket, and participants may purchase five tickets for $100. Participants may purchase as many entries as they would like and all proceeds go directly to aiding injured riders.
The winning ticket will be drawn live at the AFT finale in 2020; participants do not have to be present to win.
