On December 1st, Rocky Mountain ATV/MC had the opportunity to sponsor the 6th Annual Kurt Caselli Ride Day. Presented by the Kurt Caselli Foundation, the event focuses on the life and memory of Kurt Caselli, the legendary racer who was killed in a tragic accident during the 2013 Baja 1000. In the wake of his death, friends and family established the Kurt Caselli Foundation, an organization working to increase awareness and funding for safety equipment and policies for off-road riders and racers. The Kurt Caselli Ride Day is one of their annual fundraisers, the 2018 event raising just under $85,000.

This year, the event was held at the Fox Raceway in California. The track was open from 8:00AM-4:00PM, giving riders and supporters time to participate in activities like practice riding, team challenges, a memorial lap, prize giveaways, and a silent auction. The 6th Annual Kurt Caselli Ride Day was a success, providing attendees with a unique and fun way to learn about safety and to remember the legendary Kurt Caselli.
