April 09, 2014 6:57 PM

RENO, NV (April 9, 2014). Lockett Shows produce the Reno Off-Road Motorsports Expo every year in Reno, NV and this year they rocked the charts with a very generous donation to BRC. Al and Shirley Lockett, owners and show producers of Lockett Shows ( are involved in many promotions, but they are especially fond of the Off-Road Motorsports show because they also love motorsports like four-wheeling.

"BlueRibbon Coalition represents and helps protect all the sports and activities we love in the great outdoors," said Al, "and that is one main reason we get behind BRC every year with our event here in northern NV."

As part of the show, Matt and Daina Smith of Gardnerville, NV orchestrate and run a Silent Auction for BRC involving more than a 100 auction items. "We are so proud to be associated with such a great organization as BRC," said Daina. "We are committed to being on the landuse and BRC team and this is our way of giving back," she concluded.

The Silent Auction produced over $7000 in funds raised which more than doubled last year's auction. Del Albright, Director of Operations for BRC said: "Without folks like Matt and Daina working as passionate and dedicated volunteers, groups like BRC would never be able to do what they do."

BRC graciously thanks the over 50 business partners who contributed to the Silent Auction, and who continue to help keep trails open and motorsports alive and well.
