Press Release –
A benefit auction for the family of Chris Earlywine will be held Saturday evening at 6 p.m. during this weekend’s WPSA PowerSports ATV Tour AMSOIL Wild Cat Open Championship.
The event, from which all proceeds will go to the Earlywine family, will be held in the pit area of Wild Cat Creek MX.
In addition, ATV Racin’ Extra Editor David Screws will be selling copies of his newspaper on site all weekend with all proceeds going to the Earlywine family.
“It’s great to see the ATV racing family come together for this worthy cause,” said PowerSports Entertainment, Inc. Executive Vice President of Operations Kent Lungstrom. “Nikki and Caleb Earlywine have been in our hearts since the Virginia event, and we’re pleased to help out any way we can.”
To honor the fallen racer, Women B/C racer Carrie Auchter will carry Chris’ number 37 on her quad this weekend. Auchter competed out of the Earlywine Racing camp.
Earlywine suffered heart problems during a practice session several weeks ago in Virginia and, after being transported to a local hospital, he passed away.
