Are You Ready to Join Tony Kanaan and Jimmie Johnson on the IndyCar Circuit?

Are You Ready to Join Tony Kanaan and Jimmie Johnson in racing to support the American Legion’s “Be the One” veteran suicide prevention program?

If you are a motorsports enthusiast and follow the IndyCar circuit, driving an IndyCar might just be the best possible bucket list dream.  Sadly, Tony Kanaan and Jimmie Johnson have the two driver slots for the #48 Carvana/American Legion Honda.

As a life member of the American Legion – and a motorsports enthusiast – I’m very proud the American Legion has teamed with Chip Ganassi Racing to use the IndyCar series to raise awareness of veteran issues and the role the American Legion has played in supporting American Veterans since it was Chartered by Congress in 1919.

The American Legion is the largest veterans service organization with nearly 2 million members in more than 12,000 posts across the nation.

While you can’t drive the #48 Honda in the IndyCar series, you can support those same veterans by competing with your own car in the DVEN/Rally4Vets Top Dog Championship series.

The annual Top Dog Championships feature teams of amateur and first-time drivers competing on real race tracks to raise awareness of veteran suicide and generate funds used to provide free service dogs to veterans dealing with PTSD.

Interested? Here’s the background:

  • Drivers compete on Service teams: Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Space Force (yes!); National Guard
  • Drivers compete in classes by car capability and by experience level: novice – little experience – and experienced drivers
  • Race cars aren’t required.  Most participants use their daily driver
  • Free instructors are available for new drivers
  • Spectators are welcome
  • Medals three deep
  • Free photos and drone video of your laps
  • Make great friends
  • Help reduce veteran suicide

DVEN is thrilled to be able to complement the American Legion 2022 “Be the One” program.  Just one conversation with a veteran could save a life.

DVEN and Rally4Vets encourage everyone to ask that question and Be the One.

You can catch up with me at American Legion Post 43 in Hollywood, California.
