Late Racer's Father Issues Air Fence Challenge To CCS Midwest Riders
Gordon Lunde Sr., whose own son Gordie died after hitting a concrete bridge abutment during a race at Road Atlanta several years ago, has challenged CCS racers in the Midwest to contribute enough to the Roadracing World Air Fence Fund to pay for one section of Air Fence.Lunde runs the Wegman Benefit fund, a non-profit group which provides financial aide to injured road racers.In an e-mail to Roadracing World, Lunde wrote "I have noticed a severe lack of donations for the Air Fence Fund coming from the Midwest Region CCS membership."Yes, the Wegman Fund donated $2900 which is largely money from these Midwest Region racers but the direct contributions are not there."I have had talks with three people from this area concerning Air Fence for midwest area tracks.

Updated Post: Yates' Crash Into Air Fence Makes Believers Out Of TV Audience
Aaron Yates' high-speed crash into an air barrier at Sears Point during the televised 600cc Supersport race made a big impact on viewers, including racers and crew members who saw the crash on TV monitors along pit lane.In what may be karma, Yates and his wife Heather upped their donation to our Air Fence fund by $300 to a total of $500 the day before his crash into one of the few Air Fence modules in action at Sears Point.Yates went into the air barrier neck and shoulders first, and his father, Lucky, pointed out that such an impact into haybales (or worse, into a bare concrete or steel barrier) can be very, very serious.Yates went out of his way to mention Air Fence on the Superbike podium later in the day and in the post-Superbike-race press conference, and to specifically mention roadracingworld.com's efforts to obtain more Air Fence for our racers.The section of inflated air barrier that Yates hit was an Air Fence module.
