Doing Good In Cold Country

Over 400 intrepid riders braved plummeting temperatures and wind-chill factors of more than 25 degrees below zero Saturday in Greenville, Maine, to take part in the 10th Annual Ricky Craven Snowmobile Ride for Charity.

Craven led his frostbitten followers on a 50-mile ride through the wintry Maine countryside, before making presentations totaling more than $110,000 to the ride's official charities. In its history, the ride has raised more than 1.25 million dollars for a variety of outstanding charitable causes, including the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Children's Miracle Network, and a cause especially close to both Ricky and my hearts, the Travis Roy Foundation.

    Ricky really is a great guy. I wish things had turned out better with the Cal Wells cup effort. Any insight as to what his racing plans are, if any?

    He is going to, rumored, race a few New England Late Model and Pro Stock races this upcoming summer, relax and enjoy his family.
