Nathan Woods Benefit Ride at Glen Helen

Motorcycle Charity

The off-road motorcycle community was deeply saddened when the news arrived that two-time WORCS Champion Nathan Woods had passed away in a motorcycle accident last Friday during a practice session for the opening round of the WORCS.

Woods is survived by his wife Amanda and their two sons Nathan Jr and Braxton. Woods long-time friends FMF/KTM rider Kurt Caselli and his former mechanic Charles Jirsa have gathered some of Woods’ closest friends to organize a ride day with all proceeds going directly to the Woods family.

The ride day will be held at Glen Helen Raceway on Feb. 23, 2011. A $20.00 admission fee will be charged to all riders with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the Woods family.

Gates will open at 9 a.m. on the morning of the ride day and an open practice session will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

A silent auction will also be held until 4 p.m. with all proceeds going to the Woods family. If you have any items you would like to donate to the silent auction please bring them to the track on the day of the ride.

Please help us spread the word by encouraging your whole family and friends to come out and ride to raise money for the family of an off-road icon that will never be forgotten.
