The Western Motorcycle Drag Racing Association will be donating a portion of the gate sales from Sturgis to help America’s Forgotten Heroes vehicle to keep the tribute going.
America’s Forgotten Heroes is proud to announce that the Western Motorcycle Drag Racing Association (WMDRA) will be donating a portion of gate sales from their 2013 AMSOIL Sturgis Nationals drag race August 5-6-7 during the 73rd Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
“We saw the America’s Forgotten Heroes (AFH) tribute vehicle at the Corbin Rider Appreciation Days during the Hollister Rally and were very moved by the Dog Tags of Courage Memorial inside, the airbrushed images on the outside of the vehicle and the stories behind them,” said WMDRA President Sandra Alberti. “We are honored to donate a portion of our gate sales from Sturgis to benefit AFH’s continued success.”
The America’s Forgotten Heroes tribute vehicle is a 1991 ambulance that was recently transformed into an extraordinary rolling tribute to Search and Rescue, Police and Military Working Dogs. With artwork rendered by the renowned airbrush artist, Mickey Harris, who will also be at Sturgis, and custom interior by Mike Corbin, the tribute vehicle honors and raises awareness about the invaluable service, loyalty, and sacrifices of our four-legged heroes – America’s Forgotten Heroes.
Since it’s unveiling to the public in March of 2012, the America’s Forgotten Heroes tribute vehicle has been touring and going to schools, expos, parades, law enforcement conventions, military bases and veteran and military events.
