OUR MISSION

On the surface America's Veterans Racing appears to be a highly competitive NASCAR race team; however, through racing we would like to honor our comrades who fought and especially those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our Country. We thank them for the freedom they provide us with their sacrifices.

To those that fought, served and came home, we would like to provide job opportunities and much needed training. With our sponsor's help, we're able to offer these valuable tools to our Veterans while helping them transition from military life to civilian life.

OUR DEDICATION

America’s Veterans Racing is a family owned business, all are military veterans who's service ranges from Vietnam War era to Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. Our motto is “Honor 1st, Racing 2nd”. Our first goal is to Honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our Freedom and say thank you to everyone that has served and are serving.

Secondly, we want to help our military personnel transition from service to civilian life by providing technical training to help them gain employment, as well as maintain a camaraderie that they were used to during their service – a family.

OUR PROMISE

Racing isn’t just about going around in circles on Saturday nights. It’s a family event that is still affordable for spectators; it’s a gathering of drivers and crew with a passion for cars and going fast and advertisers that know the value of having their products and services in front of their targeted audience for more than just a 30 second commercial on TV or radio. NASCAR has the most brand loyal fans of any sport in the United States, and the South has more followers than any other location. Add to this, the unique concept of AVR – an all-military veteran racing team and you have an appealing combination. The military has its own dedicated list of families, followers and supporters, which are extremely loyal to businesses that support the men and women fighting for our country.

OUR COMMITMENT

In addition to the exposure at the track and through company related activities, there are the events that AVR will be setting up to promote our organization. These include, but are not limited to: appearances at stores to raise funds and collect items for our AVR CARES Packages that we send to deployed service members; events at VFWs, American Legion posts, USO, military bases and other related relationships. Between our unique concept and also having the first all-female veteran driver, crew chief, and pit crew, we already have quite a following on social media and at the racetrack.

I also race and have an exocet race car that travels, FIA/SCCA/NASA/SOLOII events. If you guys want to send a small decal or sticker I could find some room on one of the side panels.
