We help injured flat track motorcycle riders

About Rookies of '79

Our mission is to positively impact injured flat track motorcycle riders and their families as quickly as possible when a racing injury/accident occurs through providing financial assistance. As an IRS approved non-profit 501(c)(3), we accept tax deductible donations from fans, fellow riders and corporate sponsors. This mission is primarily accomplished by sales and raffles of donated memorabilia through our website and made under the Rookies of '79 tent at American Flat Track national flat track events and a variety of regional flat track events.
