While veterans have their particular loyalty to the branch of the armed services in which they served, there is still a strong bond between all who have served this nation in uniform. Armed Forces Motorsports (AFM) is the preeminent professional motorsports organization, representing all branches of the military.
AFM is breaking down all the barriers within the racing industry by expanding its presence in ALL forms of motorsports racing. From the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA),the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) to the Southern Super Series, Motocross and eventually the National Association of Stock Car Racing (NASCAR) and boat racing, AFM will reach out to veterans in communities all across the country.
At a time of uncertainty in our country…a time when benefits and privileges for veterans are in jeopardy, AFM is there to help boost morale, by offering a program that active duty servicemen and women, their families, and veterans all across the country can rally around – a program they can call their own.
The platform on which AFM is built serves as an invaluable marketing tool that can help disseminate important information to veterans and their families. Moreover, AFM can help reunite communities with their veterans through its outreach programs and its National Show Car Program. Overall, the AFM racing program provides an important escape for veterans and their families.
"We race to honor our veterans, and use motorsports as the venue to increase awareness of critical issues that affect them and their families."
The mission of the Armed Forces Motorsports Foundation is to directly connect active duty military, veterans and their families with services and programs that include benefits, employment, education, housing, legal, disabilities, mental health, family and children services, plus many more.
"The Veterans' Resource Summit” is the nationally focused veteran outreach program of the Armed Forces Motorsports Foundation. Additionally, to add value and depth to the program, we have partnered with several non-profit organizations and companies that support our veterans and their families on different fronts…delivering solutions directly to those in need.
