B$Z: Feld Motor Sports and Autotrader/Toyota/Yamaha/JGRMX Team Up with Make-A-Wish

Feld Motor Sports® and the Autotrader/Toyota/Yamaha/JGRMX race team, featuring Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, standout Justin Barcia have teamed up with Make-A-Wish to give 5-year-old supercross fan, Austin Coleman, his wish of riding his dirt bike with professional racers tomorrow.

 

Austin, diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, loves riding dirt bikes. He began riding at 3, and even has a track in his backyard. When asked what he wanted for his wish, he had only one thing in mind, to ride with a professional rider.

 

Austin will get to spend the day with Barcia, receiving a tour of the Joe Gibbs Racing Sprint Cup and supercross shops before heading out to the private JGRMX supercross test facility where he will have a chance to ride with Barcia. In addition to having a day with the team, the Autotrader/Toyota/Yamaha/JGRMX team in conjunction with FLY Racing and Factory Effex will outfit Austin in custom riding gear and team graphics to round out the once-in-a-lifetime experience.

 

"This is an awesome opportunity for us to make Austin's wish come true," said Coy Gibbs, team owner, Autotrader/Toyota/Yamaha/JGRMX. "Justin Barcia, who resides near our shop much of the time jumped at the opportunity to spend the day with Austin when the opportunity was presented to him."

 

"We are fortunate to thankful as an organization to be able to provide wishes like this to kids like Austin, and will do everything we can to ensure this special day is the time of his life," said Dave Prater, director of supercross, Feld Motor Sports.
