Racing for Education in on Track
Through a partnership with Diversity Motor Sports Racing, LLC CEO Terrance Alton Cox III and the Mary McLeod Bethune Legacy Preservation Institute, Inc., Racing For Education includes experts in the fields of Education, Diversity and the motorsports industry aligned with seasoned racer and engineer Bob Schacht. Mike Bliss will drive the #19 Racing For Education signature race car in the inaugural season in NASCAR’s Nationwide Series.
Racing For Education’s initiative begins with a focus on the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) and the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) and all higher learning schools with the intention of expanding support to provide quality education without regard to race, creed, color, nationality, religion or any other demographic sector.
Additionally RFE will introduce the first Rising Star Program recipient 11-year-old Matt Murphy IV, a junior Racecar driver and future Racing For Education driver. Matt began racing dragsters at the age of six under the tutelage of his grandfather Clarence “Mr. C” Millner, a former winner in the modified 470 stock car division. Matt provides the inspiration and motivation that the youth between the ages of 7 and 15 need to see how their futures can unfold and prosper through completing school and going on to college.
