Through partnerships with companies, organizations and we offer many outlets for Veterans to join us. Weather you’re disabled, or just want to feel that adrenaline rush one more time we have a spot for you!
Why We Do It
Our mission is to employ our wounded Veterans who are fighting a different enemy with PTSD, physical and other mental health issues. We currently are losing 22 Veterans a day to suicide! When returning back into the civilian world, the Veterans have expressed that being involved with the high pace of Motorsports gives them some of the same adrenaline rush as they felt when going out on missions. They yearn to belong with the Brotherhood they are missing, comradery, and to have self-worth and a purpose. Veterans Motorsports will provide the atmosphere and bond our veterans are searching for. Veterans Motorsports will hire, inspire , encourage ,motivate, and through empowerment work hands on in training Veterans in the world of Motorsports, and provide help for their mental stability. Veterans Motorsports will have your “six”.
