(Mark and Dawn are not always comfortable with fundraisers in the racing community. I was able to win the conversation and convinced them to let me move ahead with this project.)
Chaplain Mark & Dawn Merical bring the presence of God & His protection to motorcycle race & track day events all across the U.S. An essential component for our American road racing family.
Not only do they bring smiling support & encouragement to everyone at the track, they are always on hand providing prayer & comfort in the case of a racing incident or injury.
On top of that their voices lift up our great nation every race day with a fantastic performance of the national anthem which really gets the Red, White & Blue blood pumping!
Up until this point the Mericals have made do with an older truck and camper that no longer meet the needs of their ministry.
In 2021, not only will they be attending all WERA rounds and various track-day events but also all MotoAmerica rounds as well.
This puts them on the road travelling to a different location almost every weekend of the year.
The purpose of this campaign is to raise funds to help with the purchase of newer truck & 5th wheel camper. This will allow Mark & Dawn to travel to all these events safely & comfortably along with the pit vehicles they use while at the track.
While at the track the camper will also be used as a venue to host chapel services as well as a place to minster to anyone in need. It will also be a quieter place for Mark to do his podcasts and racing interviews.
As you'll see in the video, a fellow racer has offered RLM the opportunity to purchase a truck/trailer combination for 90k. This is an awesome deal for a 2017 Ram dually and 2015 42ft "toy hauler" 5th wheel. Video: https://youtu.be/MYZsRwEK07I
With the sale of their old rig and some generous donations that have already been received the goal of this project is to help cover the shortfall along with any related taxes and other miscellaneous costs.
Please know that Mark & Dawn's presence at the track cannot be overstated nor their hearts for serving God and the racing & track day community as a whole.
We thank you for taking the time to review and ask that you please consider giving generously to this campaign. You can help by selecting "DONATE" at the top of the page and noting your gift is for the truck and camper. Thank you!
