The Desert Vets Racing team is more than just a race team, it's a family. When I was invited out to drive for DVR I had a small idea about what the race team was about, what I didn't realize is that everybody is so determined to help our veterans and get them the exposure into the off-road racing industry.

If it wasn't for the DVR, I would not have had the opportunity to expand my racing goals into the off-road industry.

I was assigned to 1/2CR over in Vilseck, Germany when one of my good friends Keith Thompson told me about Desert Vets Racing and how they bring together veterans and active duty military to enjoy the sport of off-road racing.

When I met the team I instantly felt a sense of comradery with everybody and was immediately welcomed into the family, that was when I understood why mike created this organization. Just being able to come home after being overseas for two years and just go out and race with an amazing group of people is what its all about, and its something that every veteran or active duty member should be able to enjoy.
