20 American veterans commit suicide every day. This is a tragedy we veterans can do something about.

We're planning this disabled veteran support event in March 2020, just as the Covid-19 virus begins impacting America. We may need to cancel the event - and we will if there is the slightest indication of any health risk to participants and staff; however, helping veterans with PTSD is such a pressing need that we feel we should proceed with our planning and cancel if prudent.

The date is October 3, 2020, for a day of #FunWithCars on the Jefferson Circuit at Summit Point Raceway, just 60 miles west of Washington, DC at Summit Point, West Virginia.

We have developed a very fun day for veteran auto enthusiasts and their families to raise funds for companion dogs for veterans suffering from PTSD. Events details are at 2020 VetsRally4Vets

This family-friendly event includes paced parade laps, skidpad fun, and timed track laps for those who want a bit more adventure. Instructors will be available.
