On October 4, 2005, Julia Lynn Filanc passed away from
scleroderma and lung cancer at the age of 50. Her brother, Jim,
is the team captain for the Racing For Life Offroad Team. Julie's
wishes included that donations be made to the Scleroderma
Foundation and the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Jim has
dedicated 2006 to raising awareness for these two worthy
charities in her name and encouraging everyone to give often.
"Our race team wants to dedicate this year to her and the
thousands of other people affected by these diseases. So with
this tour and at every race we take part in this season we want to
teach people about these diseases and raise money to fund
research and outreach programs."

two guys we met who made a contribution to the cause. Mike Wright and Kevin Jordan, of Oklahoma City are joining forces to
compete in the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 in hte Baja Challenge buggy division. They are tohe first tow competitors we have met
during our extended tour of the US. Read more on the daily journal page.
All in all, a good day. No rain. No wind. But blasted hot. We drank lots and lots and lots of water. The crowds started filling up
the amphitheater around 5 PM. Some sat in the heat for hours to stake their seats. One group created a barracade at the front
fence to protect them from the Mosh Pit. Dozens of Harleys were put in harm's way just to stake out a seat. We're big boys.
The Daily FAN VIP Raffle
Tonight is the FAN VIP Raffle for a pair of backstage passes to the James Gang and Ted Nugent concerts. The drawing will be
held at the LMiller Lite Buffalo Chip Stage in the amphitheater at 7:45. See ya there.

year of the event that has become known to motorcycle enthusiasts throughout the world as the “Granddaddy of ‘em all”.
