Spoke with some representatives today with Anhueser- Busch in St Louis Mo. This was regarding a potential sponsor opportunity with the Budweiser beer brand. The people in St. Louis where very positive and helpful and highly supportive of a possible sponsorship deal for our AMA Pro Road Racing sportbike rider Walt Sipp.

They suggested that I contact my local bottling wholesaler distributor here in Lawrence Kansas. This is perhaps where a local in person talks and negotiations may take place for such a sponsorship with Budweiser. I ( B.J. De Jong of bearracing) have been in contact with the local Budweiser facility here in Lawrence Kansas. We will continue to seek further information regarding this potential opportunity for our professional road racing team. Please check back for more news regarding this deal and any other further news we might have as our quest for sponsorship continues.

Cainan Shutt Memorial Ride

Title: Cainan Shutt Memorial Ride
Location: Eudora Ks
Link out: Click here
Description: Join us for the Cainan Shutt Memorial Ride in Eudora Ks. on July 9th, 2011.
Start Date: July 9th, 2011.  Registration at 8am.  Kickstands up at 10:00am.

For those that don’t know, Cainan Shutt was the little boy that lost his life on K-10 during an accident.  His sister Courtlyn was hurt and in the hospital for several days and so was the children’s Grandmother.  This ride is for the Shutt family expenses caused by this accident.
B.J. and I will be riding in this event, and would love to see as many people as possible that can make it.

Cainan Shutt Memorial Fundraiser today at Wayne-And Larrys

50% of all the food sales (excluding the wing special) will be donated to the family. Please stop out to help a great cause.

If you live in and/or around Lawrence Kansas, Stop by Wayne and Larry’s at 9th and Iowa for a bite to eat.  I stopped there and got lunch for the family, and recommend getting some sweet potato fries with your order.  They were great!  And  its for a great cause.

You can keep up to date with events that Wayne and Larry’s are having by subscribing to their facebook page.  They are right beside the bowling alley in the same building.

Thanks to all that pre-ordered shirts!  You won’t have to wait much longer, we are having them made now as I make this post and will be filling orders as soon as possible.

If you ride or want to help out, join us on July 9th for the Cainan Shutt Memorial Ride in Eudora Ks.  We look forward to seeing you there!

And thanks to Wayne and Larry’s for helping out this family during their time of need!  Our hearts go out to the family and friends.
