3Js Motorcycle Track Days to Host Benefit for Dave Stanton at Sonoma Raceway

3Js Motorcycle Track Days to Host Benefit
for Dave Stanton at Sonoma Raceway

SONOMA, Calif. (Oct. 17, 2013) Motorcycle riders can indulge their passion and help one of their own on Monday, Nov. 18, as Sonoma Raceway and 3Js Motorcycle Track Days host a benefit for injured rider Dave Stanton.

The day will center on the 3Js Motorcycle Track Days 19th charity event in Sonoma, with all proceeds going directly to Stanton. Participants will enjoy a full day of riding on the 12-turn road course, a catered lunch and T-shirt. Its truly the perfect day for any two-wheel enthusiast. Cost is $250 and all riding levels are welcome.

Stanton, a Bay Area resident and long-time American Federation of Motorcyclists (AFM) competitor, suffered a crushed spine and internal injuries as the result of a racing crash on June 2. The accident left Stanton paralyzed from the chest down, and he faces ongoing challenges in recovery, including financial concerns. The 3Js Track Day will work to raise as much money as possible for Stanton and his family.

I've been racing for 22 years with AFM, AMA, FIM and WERA, and I never expected this to happen to me, said Stanton. I loved being part of these organizations and look forward to attending the track day benefit and auction. I hope to see many of you out there and truly appreciate the continued support.

Some of motorcycle racings top stars will be on hand to show their support for Stanton, including AMA Pro Racing riders Josh Hayes, Melissa Paris, Jake Zemke, James Rispoli, Steve Rapp and many more.

The days activities will also include two-up rides with Jason Pridmore and Shawn Reilly, a track walk with national racers discussing their favorite sections of the race course, raffles for a new Yamaha WR250 motorcycle and a custom Helimot Leather Racing Suit, and a silent auction. The day will conclude with a trackside evening reception.

Items up for bid in the silent auction include Yamaha MotoGP memorabilia signed by Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo, Ben Spies, Tommy Hayden, Cameron Baubier and Garrett Geroff; MotoGP ticket packages; Pirelli, Dunlop, and Bridgestone motorcycle tires; Motion Pro tools, racing parts, and clothing; overnight hotel stays; a luxury yacht charter package in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; an Arlen Ness leather racing suit; Z2 Track Day 10-pack gift certificates; helmets, racing products, gift certificates and much more!

Motorcycle industry vendors will be present to support the days activities by providing services and products for the all of attendees, whether they are riding on the track or attending to show their support for Stanton and his family.

3Js Motorcycle Track Days events have raised more than $275,000 for worthy causes since 2003. For more information or to register for the Stanton track day, visit Registering is a two-step process, which includes $50 to register and a $200 donation to Stanton via PayPal. Spectator admission for the track day is $25 which includes lunch, and admission to the evening reception is $20.

I'm going to move to the West Regional forum. It might get more activity there.

This sounds like a great event. Are they ever held on weekends, or are Mondays the norm?

These days are put together by some of the principals of the raceway. They fit them into the schedule where there is the least demand, so they are usually on weekdays. I went to a benefit for another rider several years ago and it was a really well put together day and much fun. If you are thinking of going I would recommend doing it.

Its been years since we have done track days, but Dave Stanton was one of the names you heard often, and always as a good guy. I'm considering just going as a spectator to hang and do some bench racing. See people go fast and smell the race gas..

definitely worth coming out, as a spectator during the day and/or for the evening reception, even if you're not planning to ride!

Or if you really can't make it but wish to enter the raffles or just to contribute, the info regarding how to do so is at the bottom:
