"Racing for Outreach" is an innovative program designed to harness the excitement and thrill of Wingless Super Sportsman racing as a powerful platform to raise awareness for mental health and suicide prevention. This unique initiative aims to engage local school districts by combining the adrenaline-fueled world of Wingless Super Sportsman racing with the critical conversation surrounding mental health.

The program will feature a series of high-profile Wingless Super Sportsman races partnered with BAPS Motor Speedway, strategically organized to attract a broad demographic of spectators, enthusiasts, and participants. These events will serve as more than just thrilling competitions; they will also serve as platforms for education and advocacy, promoting mental health awareness and suicide prevention.

Through the "Racing for Outreach" program, the aim is not only to entertain racing enthusiasts but also to spark important conversations, break down stigma, and ultimately contribute to a society that prioritizes mental health and supports those in need.

To ensure the success and sustainability of the "Racing for Outreach" program, we recognize the invaluable role that sponsors play in driving both the racing events and the associated mental health awareness initiatives. Engaging sponsors with a passion for community impact and corporate social responsibility will elevate the program's reach and impact.
