Pauls Valley, OK – Covercraft has teamed up with Finish Line Speed Shop to feature their special build at the 2016 SEMA Show. The seasoned vehicle builders successfully built and displayed the project “Dream Dart” at the 2015 SEMA Show and made the decision then to start a tradition of projects geared towards giving back at the annual event in Las Vegas. Tragically, after returning home from the show in 2015, their good friend Mark Cain of Cain Custom lost his battle with ALS. It was with no hesitation that Finish Line decided to create a vehicle in Mark’s memory for the 2016 SEMA Show and to use this project as a way to give back in the fight to battle ALS. Lyon McClenahan from Finish Line says “Mark was a true car guy and didn’t let ALS stop him. It had afflicted him to the point that he could no longer speak, but there he was at every car show walking around typing on his tablet or writing to communicate”. Mark never hesitated to offer his help with projects and was a local legend in the car community around Bremerton, Washington. “His legacy lives on as we work together to assist other families currently battling this ugly disease”, says McClenahan. ALS or Amytrophic Lateral Sclerosis is more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease and is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that destroys motor neurons. These neurons are among the largest of all nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord and are responsible for sending messages to muscles throughout the body.
The Finish Line Speed Shop 2016 SEMA build is dedicated to help “Strike Out ALS” and will be unveiled in Covercraft’s Booth #23531 in Central Hall on Tuesday, November 1st at 10:00am. The vehicle will be sold in the Spring of 2017 and proceeds from the sale will be donated in Mark’s honor to combat ALS.
