AMA Pro Road Racing: MRO Food Drive

Motorcycle Charity

AMA Pro Racing, the premier professional motorcycle racing organization in the USA, is headed to Virginia International Raceway (VIR).

During the event, the Second Annual MRO VIR Food Drive to benefit God’s Storehouse will be taking place there at the Suzuki White Lightning AMA Pro Superbike Nationals, to be held August on 13th to 15th, 2010.

As last season, the food drive will be held on both the WERA and AMA Pro weekends, August 6 – 8 and 13 – 15, 2010, respectively. Riders, teams, fans, officials and everyone who attends are invited to bring non-perishable food items to donate to the Storehouse. Last year the combined weekends raised over 400 pounds of food, which were distributed to the needy in the Danville, Va. area.

There will be marked gray bins throughout the paddock and vendor areas for donations to be dropped off. Any AMA Pro teams who have unopened food left over on Sunday are invited to request a bin and MRO Chaplain Tim Burleson will see to it that you have one so your leftover food can be donated.

For more information, contact Chaplain Tim at gracingfuelministry@yahoo.com. God’s Storehouse can be contacted via their website godsstorehouse.org or by calling 434-793-3663. Motor Racing Outreach’s website is go2mro.com.
