Racing for Outreach

Racing for Outreach

To help kick off the 100th year anniversary celebration of The American Legion, our race team brought their 2018 sprint car to the January Department Executive Committee (DEC) meeting in Moon Township.  The team briefed the DEC on the many Posts they traveled to last year for displays, parades, and car shows in support of membership and veteran outreach.

Gregg Foster, the team driver/owner, was quoted as stating “In his position as a Government Sales Representative for Snap On Tools, he has the unique opportunity to interact with soldiers, sailors and airman on a daily basis throughout the Commonwealth.  I get the opportunity to tell The American Legion story and discuss the many programs and benefits of membership daily.  At the many race tracks we run, I have grown a reputation for helping veterans and family members with all types of issues.  Both fans and fellow racers know that if they need help with VA issues, I will get them hooked up with a Department Service Officer to get them the help they are looking for.”

Any Post who feels the race car could support an event they have planned can send an email to Bruce Foster to check availability.
