FAST Aid set to offer services at upcoming SCORE Primm race!
Representatives from the organization will have a booth set-up on Friday at contingency behind Buffalo Bills Casino and Hotel in Primm, Nevada for the SCORE International Primm 300 off-road race on September 10th.
Fast-Aid will be accepting donations as well as offering information on safety classes and how racers can benefit from its services. Fast-Aid was founded 4 months ago by Adam Gunn and Patrick Dailey. Gunn’s vision was to create an organization that aided injured racers and their families through the rehabilitation process. Gunn saw a need to find the financial support to help with medical bills and other services a racer would need after a serious injury during a racing event as well as safety education to prevent life threatening injuries.
“FAST-aid exists to help racers and teams prevent life-changing and life-ending accidents through education, to assist the injured their families deal with accidents, and to help coordinate necessary resources for recovery,” said Jared Tetzlaff, President of Fast-Aid.With the official launch of the organization just over 30 days ago, people have already started embracing Fast-Aid’s mission. Former Baja 1000 winner Andy McMillin said, "Off-road racing, like any form of motorsports, is very dangerous. With speed, only come harder and more severe crashes. I am proud to be involved with a group like Fast Aid.”
KTM Rider Chris Blais knows all too well the consequences of a crash. Blais was injured during the Best In The Desert Vegas 2 Reno race in 2007. Blais depended on donations from the off-road community to get specialized equipment and rehabilitation services and has also voiced his support for FAST-aid.
“The Fast Aid guys understand what is needed in off-road and are implementing ideas all racers, families, crews and beyond can benefit from,” said desert racer and television commentator Cameron Steele.Currently Fast-Aid covers the race sanctions within the United States including BITD, CODE, DRIVE, KOH, LOORS, MDR, MORE, SCORE, SNORE AND TORC.
