In 2019 Vet2Track was at Road America for Round 4 of MotoAmerica season. During that weekend we met John Hill, a Vietnam Veteran whos son, Shawn Hill races in the MotoAmerica Twins Class. We spent a lot of time talking over the weekend. After the weekend was over, I recieved a call from his son Shawn, and during that call we decided to put a veteran on his race team to see how it went.
We got the opportunity to put a veteran, CW4 Lisa Niner (Ret.), on the team during the 8th Round Pittsburgh MotoAmerica Event. This turned out to be a great idea and we are going to do it throughout the 2020 season!
If you are a Veteran or you know a Veteran that would be interested in being part of a MotoAmerica Raceteam for a full race weekend, please let us know. Nominate them here Nominate a Veteran
During the race weekend, the Veterans will have a place to stay, will be provided breakfast and dinner (Veterans may purchase lunch at the trackside vendors), and be able to take the time to go watch some Racing!!
