Legion-Ganassi Mission To Help Veterans Marches Forward

There’s much more to racing than sleek cars speeding around a racetrack trying to get to the finish line first. Take Chip Ganassi Racing and its sponsor The American Legion as a prime example. The American Legion’s mission with Chip Ganassi Racing and within the NTT INDYCAR SERIES is to spread awareness of the number one issue in the veteran community — suicide. Nearly $40,000 has been raised, with all proceeds going directly to The American Legion. Part of this partnership is an activation unit at every NTT INDYCAR SERIES race venue. “We found out he was active duty in the military,” Kessel said. “We found out he was from Florida and lived near a very active (Legion) Post. “I did not get a chance to see Chip after the race, as we were still dealing with this,” Kessel said.
