“VETMotorsports can’t think of a better way to end our 2014 AMA Pro Road Racing outreach. We’ll have some incredible teams collaborating with us all year, and the final race event held at New Jersey is no exception. The teams will be providing some amazing opportunities for our disabled veterans. Spike TV’s involvement strengthens what we already know: that motor sports and motorcycling is a powerful, positive environment for veteran recovery. VETMotorsports is making a difference in the lives of our participants, and to be associated with the VOW program is humbling. VETMotorsports encourages those wishing to support our 2015 programming and funding goal by making a donation at https://www.crowdrise.com/VETMotorsports-VOW,” stated VETMotorsports Executive Director and Founder Peter Cline.
