Road 2 Recovery Named as Presenting Sponsor for RedBud II

Buchanan, MI (August 31, 2020) – Officials with RedBud MX are pleased to announce that the Road 2 Recovery Foundation will present Round Two of the Circle K National at RedBud scheduled for Labor Day, Sept. 7.

The Circle K National at RedBud, presented by Road 2 Recovery, marks the first time the organization has been named as a major sponsor for America’s Motocross Race. The industry standard in providing financial and much more assistance to professional motocross racers who have sustained a debilitating injury, Road 2 Recovery has a longstanding relationship with RedBud, which was happy to extend the prestigious presenting title to what they strongly feel is such a worthy organization.

“Road 2 Recovery is a godsend to racers and their families in this industry,” said RedBud’s Amy Ritchie. “They don’t just send racers a check, they do so much more, and not just for the big name racers we all know. I’ve seen how they’ve helped some of our local pros, for example. Help can mean wading through insurance issues, getting much needed equipment and rehab, renovating homes to accommodate a wheelchair. The list goes on. They have an amazing team of caring people.

“We welcome Road 2 Recovery as the presenting sponsor for the Circle K, RedBud national on Labor Day! We want to shine a light on the amazing things they do.”

Lori Armistead, Chairperson of the Board and Directors and head of Marketing and Public Relations for Road 2 Recovery, said this: “We can’t thank the Ritchies and the whole RedBud team enough for offering us the presenting sponsorship opportunity for a national motocross event. RedBud is truly America’s Motocross Track and everyone at Road 2 Recovery can’t say enough about how pleased we are to be such a big part of the weekend, presenting the Labor Day event.”

RedBud and R2R have teamed up to create a unique, combined-logo neck gaiter to commemorate the event and raise money for R2R. It’s a perfect addition to any fall or winter wardrobe, and doubles as an easy-to-wear, moto-inspired mask. A few will debut on RedBud’s online store today (link on, but the majority will be reserved for racers and their crews in attendance at RedBud this weekend. You’ll find them at the RedBud store on vendor row.

Road 2 Recovery Fund Established For Tevin Tapia
A Road 2 Recovery Fund has been established for injured motocrosser Tevin Tapia.

On Friday, August 7, Supercross and Motocross Privateer rider Tevin Tapia suffered a major crash at Fox Raceway in Pala, California. The 28-year-old was injured while practicing for the first round of the 2020 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. He was immediately transported via Air Ambulance to a nearby hospital where he underwent a successful surgery to address fractures to the C6 and C7 vertebrae on Friday evening. Surgeons performed a spinal fusion connecting the two fractured vertebrae and installed stabilization hardware from his C5 to C7 vertebrae.

Road 2 Recovery Fund Established For Tevin Tapia

Tapia is in stable condition with feeling throughout his body however he currently has no movement or muscle control in his left leg. It is expected that he will remain in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for a few more days, then move to the in-patient rehabilitation division of this hospital for one month. Doctors are optimistic that with intensive and long-term therapy, Tevin will regain full movement and control of his left leg.

The medical bills are anticipated to be substantial as Tevin was without any medical insurance coverage, therefore, the **Road 2 Recovery Foundation** has opened a fundraising campaign to assist Tevin with all medical bills.

If you are able, please donate to Tevin’s R2R Fund. You can leave a positive message and well-wishes below for Tevin and his family to read.
