May 20th 2014:ManPower 2 HorsePower

As many Veterans and their families know all too well, the transition from service to civilian life has many obstacles. A large amount of combat Veterans have PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and tasks like sitting in a classroom that civilians take for granted are difficult. Manpower to Horsepower is a hands-on program that teaches Veterans motorsport management.

A large amount of combat Veterans have PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and tasks like sitting in a classroom that civilians take for granted are difficult. Manpower to Horsepower is a hands-on program that teaches Veterans motorsport management. Sue Roberson CEO/President for Manpower to Horsepower Salisbury, North Carolina We started this business in 2009 to just start giving back to our Veterans by building a 2 seat race car that the Veterans could ride around the track in. That was a great success which led us to thinking that maybe we could through our race shop teach some of them to weld and fabricate and help them get jobs. I talked to the Veterans Administration about my idea which lead them to sending me to the community colleges to start a program. We have now been able for the past four years have a Motorsports program that is strictly for Veterans and is taught at our race shop. We not only teach at the shop but as long as they maintain a good GPA in school they go to the track with the race cars and are the pit crew for our super late model dirt cars. Because we race World of Outlaw and Lucas Oil Series we are going to 19 states and 67 cities in the US so that we can spread the word about this program to as many Veterans that are interested. We have recently been given the go ahead for our new school in Kansas City and have also partnered with CRI Counter Terrorism Training in Las Vegas, Warriors in the Workplace, and the Tug McGraw Foundation so that we are able to offer more jobs for our Veterans . Both mine and my husband’s families are very military oriented so this is a very near and dear cause for us.
