On September 9, 2016, VA and Richmond International Raceway (RIR) teamed up for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Pole Qualifying. VA was also on site all race weekend with health and benefits experts, reaching out to Veterans and their families. During the course of the weekend, VA was able to assist nearly 700 Veterans and family members. Thank you to all those who came out. We are honored to serve you and to help you drive your VA benefits and services home with NASCAR and RIR.
Last race season, VA was on site for 11 Sprint Cup Series race weekends and was able to reach out to over 5,300 Veterans, Service members and their families about their VA benefits. This “NASCAR Season of Service” was part of VA’s “Summer of Service” initiative to make VA more accessible to Veterans and their families directly in their communities. Check out the article on VA’s NASCAR in the Fall/Winter Issue of VA’s VAnguard magazine to read more about how VA is working to improve the Veteran experience through partnerships like NASCAR.
VA also teamed up with Richmond International Raceway (RIR) to promote greater access and awareness during the Department of Veterans Affairs Pole Qualifying for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series on September 11, 2015. You can view the promotion video for the event below! VA and RIR are teaming up again for 2016, so be sure to check back for more information.
