Kurt Caselli Foundation- Ironman GNCC Brain Study

RANCHO DOMINGUEZ, CA – November 18, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – On behalf of the Kurt Caselli Foundation I would like to share the latest safety initiative the Foundation has taken part in.  We pride ourselves in DOING things that can help support the lives of offroad riders and being able to be a part of the final GNCC Race in Indiana was a great experience and brought some great light to our Foundation and the help and support we have all across the world.  Thanks to the staff of the GNCC series for welcoming our group with open arms for our testing.

The Kurt Caselli Foundation completed its second set of intensive brain injury studies at the final round of the GNCC Series in Crawfordsville IN. The study funded entirely by the Kurt Caselli Foundation and its donors focused on collecting head acceleration data from youth, female, and elite athletes in hopes of gaining a better understanding of the forces these athletes undergo during a grueling races. The ultimate goal of this research is to offer the results of our peer-reviewed data to any party with interest including helmet and protective gear manufacturers. We hope that our efforts will continue to bring awareness to the issue of concussion and mild traumatic brain injury.
