BENEFITING: Veteran Empowerment Through Motorsports Inc
EVENT DATE: Aug 16, 2013
TOR-VETM’s two-wheel motorsports program competes in the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) Pro Racing /Daytona Motorsport Group’s (DMG) national Harley-Davidson XR1200 Series supported by Vance & Hines. Program participants are embedded into the team and given active participation as crew members. Our weekend crew members perform an array of tasks, from physical / mechanical work to speaking to the general public and media. TOR-VETM provides support as veterans work through any handicaps or disabilities as a crew member of the team. Being a crew member allows veterans to overcome or work through their handicaps and work with their peers in a team setting. Up to three veterans and their families are assigned to each motorcycle. AMA Pro Racing events are three day events, usually held on the weekends. Combat Veterans are provided guidance by TOR-VETM staff and our assigned crew chief.
