#1: Help injured U.S. military veterans participate in amateur racing
Motorsports engage vets in healthy
exercise and safe competition with other like-minded enthusiasts. Racing provides something fun and
competitive to do, allows veterans to get out of their homes, gives a sense of purpose and camaraderie, and
develops transferable mechanical and business skills. Racing is a fun and stimulating activity where injured
vets can forget their worries and their disabilities do not interfere with their ability to work on vehicles,
go fast, experience dynamic motion and g-forces, and maneuver a vehicle on a track.
#2: Prove that
injured veterans can compete and win against any competitors in an equal arena.
This is about building
pride and self-belief which leads to long term success in life, both personally and professionally. With the
right controls and safety equipment, the ability to go fast and race a vehicle competitively is not limited by
PTSD, the loss of a limb, burns, or many other combat injuries. Many injured veteran racers have
achieved top level success in motor racing. Racing4Vets helps service-disabled U.S. military veterans prove to
themselves and others that they can compete successfully in an arena where they can participate to the best of
#3: Do it safely and correctly.
This is fundamental to the entire
program. Racing on a controlled and properly supervised track can be done very safely with the
right equipment and proper training. Motorsports are statistically safer than activities such as skiing,
snowboarding, water skiing, kayaking, soccer, hockey, scuba diving, even softball! Doing it safely
is a prerequisite to having fun.
#4: Inspire people to support our injured and disabled U.S.
Our vets need help! Many have come home with grave injuries and little support. The
U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) budget is strained and the U.S. economy isn’t producing the jobs that
veterans need. Wounded vets have few outlets for healthy fun and competition to enrich their lives. With
Racing4Vets we raise the challenges and capabilities of our injured veterans to the forefront of people’s
consciousness and inspire them to help with offers of jobs, medical support, and financial assistance.
We intend to use 100% of the Racing4Vets organization’s profits to directly benefit service disabled U.S.
military veterans and to create programs that directly assist veterans in need. Our programs
promote fun, a winning attitude, and develop transferable skills for veterans to take into civilian
life. We are very passionate about what we’re trying to achieve and we hope you are too!
