The Grand Opening of the first all-service-disabled U.S. Military Veteran automotive mechanical and competition training program in the United States will be held on November 19, 2016 at 7823 Rutillio Ct, New Port Richey, FL 34653 from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. The Ribbon Cutting will be held at 11:00 am.

Founded by U.S. Army Staff Sergeant John Vann (Ret.) Racing4Vets Southeast, located in Tampa Florida, successfully launched its automotive training program in late 2014. The Grand Opening celebration is being held after the team’s shop and educational facility recently underwent a 100% renovation.

100% of the proceeds go directly to benefit service disabled U.S. military veterans and to create programs that directly assist veterans in need. Our programs promote fun, a winning attitude, and develop transferable skills for veterans to take into civilian life.
