On February 11th, 2006, James Marshall was tragically injured in round 6 of the Amp'd Mobile Supercross series in San Diego. Running in 5th place in Heat #2, James went over the bars through a tricky step up--step down combination and was subsequently hit by two trailing riders. The impact of the incident left Marshall with broken C2, C5, and C6 vertebrate and a broken pelvis. James was instantly paralyzed and was sent to the ICU at Sharp Memorial Hospital. He is currently back at his home in Houston with his family continuing his rehabilitation. The cost of medical care for James has been overwhelming to him and his family.
“James Marshall is a great guy and a talented motocross rider. He has been a friend to Jägermeister and we are eager to help raise money to cover some his medical expenses.” says Rick Zeiler, Director of Marketing for Jägermeister, “We have pulled together our friends and resources to create an event that will hopefully help.”
Jägermeister has joined forces with sponsored bands and So Cal favorites (hed) Planet Earth and Mower. 100% of ticket profits will go to James along with auction proceeds. Silent auction sponsors include Schecter Guitars, Peavey, Vestal Watch and Shift. New sponsors are stepping up with cool items every day so bring your wallets!
