•Workshops for Warriors featured on Newman's car at Chicago: Ryan Newman's #39 Chevy carries a special paint scheme this weekend that recognizes an organization whose goal is to assist veterans in job training and helps them create the best post-military-service life possible. It's called Workshops for Warriors and it was founded in San Diego, Calif., by U.S. Navy veteran Hernán Luis y Prado, who recognized and acted upon the need to help veterans find jobs after leaving military service. The Gene Haas Foundation, formed in 1999 by SHR co-owner Gene Haas, has announced a grant of $50,000 to Workshops for Warriors, which assists the transition of veterans and injured veterans into civilian life through mentorship, training, and education. In addition to the grant, Haas Automation has also entrusted the program with four Haas-CNC machines and made a donation of eight training simulators with a value of $444,000 to Workshops for Warriors. The money and the machines will be used to establish a machinist training program for military veterans. Workshops for Warriors is a board-governed nonprofit organization that provides vocational training to veterans of the U.S. Armed Services.(Stewart-Haas Racing)(9-12-2012)
I sure don't.
I've been a fan of most motor sports for most of my 57 years.
NASCAR fans are all sorts of people, just like the rest of us.
And because they have the money, they do all sorts of good for the community. Not just the NASCAR community, but the US community.
