22 is a number that truly hits home for every military member. We often hear that 22 Veterans a day take their lives due to PTSD, loneliness, anxiety, and depression. We want that number to be 0. So, 22 to 0, 220. We bring that mission everywhere we go, bringing awareness and reduce Veteran suicides by giving them purpose, a team, camaraderie, and a family who truly cares. O’l Chesty – our 1996 Crown Victoria – has served us well. Beaten and battered, it continues to forge on, leading our team to victory.
We received our second car through the generosity of Live P.D. on A&E® and the Richlands County Sheriffs Department. This car is our dedication to First Responders across the country. We choose 412 as the car’s number to bring awareness to and as a memorial of, the number of First Responders who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Along with the name – Ladder 3 – for the Ladder Company that was all but wiped out when the north tower fell. We dedicate this car – our 2011 Crown Victoria – to all First Responders across this great Nation.
For our third car, we decided on the number “282” for Senior Chief Petty Officer Scott Dayton and the EOD Platoon to which he was assigned. Senior Chief Dayton was killed on November 24, 2016, while serving during Operation Inherent Resolve. He was 42, and the first American killed in Syria. This magnificent beast, named after the 2d Battalion, 30th Infantry Regiment of the 10th Mountain, is our only Chevy. “Wild Boar” – our 1979 Camaro – adds flair to our events and is dedicated to Senior Chief. Your name will live on with us, Scott!
Team Marine Racing
Our fourth car – not yet running – is Team Marine Racing NASCAR. Piloted by Hank Parker Jr. Our intentions are to restore this car to its former glory, stuff in an extra seat so we can take kids and disabled veterans and first responders out on track and on the skid pad for some adrenaline fueled fun
Where the action happens!
