To harness the financial opportunities created by West Virginia's growing motorsports tourism industry and pass those proceeds on to deserving WV veteran oriented agencies in order to help them better serve their clients.
Most folks have seen the Blue Star flags that people hang in their windows when their children are deployed in the military. The Gold Star flag is displayed when your child has been killed in action. Gold Star Mothers are mothers that have given the ultimate sacrifice a mother can offer to this great country… her child. In the military community Gold Star mothers are often held in higher esteem than Medal Of Honor awardee’s. To have these ladies as the entity we are supporting with the event is one of the highest honors I’ve ever had. Come help us help these ladies. They really do get things done in the veterans community.
