The following is from JB Norris…

AMA Flat Track announcer and artist, JB Norris is offering one of his flat track fine art pieces on Ebay to help Terry Poovey and his family. “I hope the Dirt Track Family will open their hearts and wallets for Terry,” said JB.

Terry Poovey, a long time star of the AMA Grand National Dirt Track Series, was injured in a multi-bike crash on the last lap of the recent Springfield Mile. Terry, although making good progress, remains in a coma in a hospital in Texas. Terry was recently transferred by air ambulance from Springfield, Illimois to Dallas. The air ambulance bill was $10,000.

JB is offering this special “PULLIN’ FOR POOVEY” Flat Track fine art piece on Ebay in an effort to help Terry’s family cover this and/or other expenses they have incurred as a result of his injury. Proceeds from this sale will be sent to the family.

This oil on canvas art work depicts Terry racing through a corner aboard his XR-750 Harley-Davidson on The Springfield Mile the day he was injured.

“Pulling for Poovey” is a 30″ x 24″ stunning piece of flat track fine art on canvas. It is framed with a process known as gallery wrapped. The canvas is wrapped around a sturdy wooden frame and is ready to hang.
