Ladies and gentlemen, mark your calendars for the first annual OvoCycle
charity track day at Carolina Motorsports Park
on Monday, September 29th.
Show up Sunday and we'll be having a party!
Monday brings a great track day at the newly-renovated CMP, including tire service provided by Sportbike Track Time
. There are chances to win Michelin tires, Scorpion helmets, and other great prizes, too!
The track day benefits Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance and South Carolina Ovarian Cancer Foundation.

A few notes about ovarian cancer:
Ovarian Cancer is a serious and under-recognized threat to women's health:
<li>Ovarian cancer, the deadliest of the gynecologic cancers, is the fifth leading cause of cancer death among U.S. Women.
<li>Ovarian cancer occurs in 1 out of 57 women.
<li>An estimated 14,000 American women will die from ovarian cancer each year.
<li>Currently, about 50 percent of the women diagnosed with ovarian cancer die from it within five years. Among African American women only about 46 percent survive five years or more.
<li>Three out of four cases are detected in late stage when five-year survival is about 25 percent.
A couple other notes: I'm on the Board of this charity, and hope to make this an annual event. Michelin has really stepped up for us this year, but I need to sell this thing out to make it happen.
