The Perfect COVID-19 Face Mask For Motocross Fans (UPDATED)

UPDATE JUNE 12, 2020: Sorry to inform everyone that we have sold out of the Scott Face Mask replicas. We want to thank the folks who supported the fund-raising effort for the Miller Family. I will be posting the final amount raised for the family from the mask sales in the next few weeks. But just because the masks are sold out doesn’t mean you can’t help. You can hit the following link and donate directly to the Miller Family. Check out their GoFundMe page here

SAD NEWS MAY 22, 2020: Dave Miller bravely fought cancer for several months and was undergoing intensive chemo therapy, but regrettably, he lost his battle today, (May 22, 2020), just as Curt Evans and I were organizing a fund raising effort for him. We plan to keep raising the money for Dave’s family (or other worthy cause) if people want to order the masks described in the following article. God speed, Dave.

THE ORIGINAL STORY: I’m going to be wearing a face mask in public, at least in the immediate future. While there is conflicting information on the effectiveness of masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19, I decided to wear one as a courtesy to others. So, if I’m going to be wearing a mask, I might as well have a little fun.

I contacted long-time friend and cartoonist extraordinaire, Curt Evans. We grew up around motocross so Curt totally understood the concept and offered to come up with the artwork and coordinate the mask’s production. What you see here is a Curt-Evans-designed face mask sewn in Ashland, Oregon, U.S.A.

Curt and I made enough masks from our own use. If more riders want some, we could order another batch. The masks cost us $10 plus shipping so we’d consider selling them for $20 each as a way to raise money for Dave Miller (check out his GoFundMe page here). Every cent above our cost would go to Dave. In fact, even if you don’t want a mask, why not donate whatever you can to Dave anyway?

I figure that once this COVID-19 gets under control, I can still use my masks for our wildfire season. I’ll also wear it while I’m riding my DR-Z400 and mountain bikes.
