“I was stationed in North Carolina and that’s where my love of racing began. I actually sold my dirt track car and everything I had for it, to help start Veterans Community Project. Now we have a village of 49 tiny houses for homeless Veterans in Kansas City and we’re expanding to Colorado this year. Seeing the VCP logo on JJ’s car is amazing. Our mission is to do everything we can to have our brothers and sisters’ backs. And if getting the word out in racing helps us support more of them, that’s something we want to do,” said Brandonn Mixon, Co-Founder and Chief Project Officer.
