This Sunday, May 25th at The Ohio State University's Ackerman Road Parking Lot, VETMotorsports will again be partnering with the Sports Car Club of America and place injured combat veterans behind the wheel of sports cars. VETMotorsports is a central-Ohio based non-profit that places post 9/11 injured combat veterans behind the wheel in sanctioned autocross events or embeds them as pit crew members within select pro racing teams. VETMotorsports overall mission is to provide this generation of wounded veterans a unique and powerful non-clinical outreach program in motor sports. VETMotorsports' just completed their first central-Ohio event last weekend at Ohio State.
“Car racing is an effective part of our non-clinical outreach program. Our non-traditional approach gets veterans to work thought injures and re-acclimate themselves to civilian life. By embedding veterans into positive environment, VETMotorsports is attempting to provide direction and empowerment. Last weekend our participants connected will fellow veterans and received peer-to-peer interaction. This is our second of three events in central-Ohio and we are looking forward to working with our injured veteran participants,” stated VETMotorsports Executive Director and Founder Peter Cline.
