Racers 4 Waverly launched in support of flood victims

Catastrophic flooding strikes home of Amateur National Championships.

MX Sports has launched Racers 4 Waverly to help the town that plays host to the Amateur National Motocross Championships, Waverly, Tennesse, following catastrophic flooding.

Just two weeks after the motocross world descended upon Loretta Lynn’s ranch, and subsequently Waverly, Tennessee, the area received 17 inches of rainfall in under 24 hours.

This unprecedented event led to a tragic day for the citizens of Waverly, marked by severe flooding that left a path of death, injury and destruction, unwitnessed before in the history of central Tennessee.

The lives of every resident of the community of Waverly would be adversely impacted, with more than 20 deaths and an equal number of residents still missing.

Now, as the citizens of Waverly face the greatest challenges of their lives and seek to find the formula for the recovery of their community, our community of motocross and off-road racers has the opportunity to repay the kindness and support that the Waverly community has shown to us for nearly half a century.

MX Sports, organizer of the AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at the Ranch, has placed a Call to Action to our sport, our athletes and the motorcycle industry as a whole, to join them in a charitable fundraising program to support the community of Waverly. 

This program, Racers 4 Waverly, will benefit members of the Waverly community as a whole, including local residents who have been actively engaged with the event. The program will be collectively coordinated through our sport’s official charity, TheRoad 2 Recovery Foundation.
