Moto Liberty is holding a benefit auction for Zac Chapman

The great people over at Moto Liberty are holding a benefit auction for Zac Chapman.

Zac is a teenager that had a very promising career as a Pro road racer; however, due to an accident at Virginia International Raceway in August 2009, Zac is going to need the highly skilled nursing care for many years to come.

Zac was a WERA racer and team rider for TVR/EBC Brakes Yamaha and was critically injured during a sprint race.   Chapman received head and neck injuries in the single bike crash. He was initially lucid, but was taken to the hospital in nearby Danville as a precaution. After arriving there, however, his condition declined and he was airlifted to the Carilion Clinic in Roanoke, Virginia.

As of Sunday night, Chapman is in a coma due to his injuries—including fluid buildup inside his skull—and is listed in critical condition. He has already undergone two surgeries to relieve the pressure in his skull and to accommodate swelling. More information will be released as it becomes available.

The Chapman family is needing the help of our biking community so please make plans to join the fundraiser that will be held at Speed zone on February 24.   Everyone that shows up will be tearing up the kart tracks in honor of Zac and there are dozens of donated items that will be available for bid in the silent auction.   This is a fantastic opportunity to get a great deal of motorcycle related products and enjoy an evening of fun on 4 wheels instead of our usual two wheels!

The details are:

  • Wednesday, February 24
  • 6:30p
  • Speed Zone (I-35 at Walnut Hill in Dallas)
  • Silent Auction (check out this link often as new donations are arriving daily!)

    All my best to Zac. I have a son who was hit by a car when he was 10, and survived, although had to recover from traumatic brain injury and 3 months in a coma. He is in college now; miracles do happen. I can not be there, but support Zac and his family with my thoughts and prayers, and would like to tell them not to give up on him -- there is hope.
    Welcome as a Motorcycle Examiner, Michael. I added you to my side bars on my page and subscribed to you. I look forward to hearing what's happening West of us!

    Great article. Motorcyclists are good Samaritans and I know they will come out for a fund raiser for a fellow biker.

    Welcome to our group of Motorcycle Examiners. Looking forward to more articles!
