SERKET Racing, Navy SEAL Museum to Support Veteran-Owned Businesses
September 8th, 2014
WELLINGTON, Fla. (Sept. 8, 2014) - SERKET Racing has teamed up with the National Navy SEAL Museum and the Navy Seal Veterans Foundation for a benefit mission to help support veteran owned businesses and the museum itself on Sept. 18-19 at Circuit of the Americas (COTA) in Austin, Texas.
SERKET Racing and driver Mark Llano have dedicated space on the hood of their Porsche 911 race car to feature and support veteran owned businesses, whose logos will be placed alongside the Navy SEAL Museum logo during the COTA Races later this month.
“The National Navy SEAL Museum is proud to partner with Mark Llano and SERKET Racing in support of veterans across our great nation,” said Rick Kaiser, BMCM SEAL (Ret), executive director of the National Navy SEAL Museum. “A great partnership of Navy SEALs and U.S. Marines only makes both organizations stronger, and I look forward to what we can accomplish together.”
The National Navy SEAL Museum and Memorial, located in Fort Pierce, Florida, was formally dedicated in November 1985 and is the official national museum of the U.S. Navy SEALs and their predecessors. Despite the designation by Congress as the official museum, it receives no Federal funding and is entirely reliant on private donations. The mission of the museum is to preserve the legacy and history of our Navy SEALs.
Eight veteran-owned businesses will be featured alongside the Navy SEAL Museum logo on the hood of the No. 24 Porsche. At the end of the race weekend, SERKET Racing will donate the hood to the museum for a raffle to help raise funds and awareness. The featured businesses include:
The National Navy SEAL Museum also will continue to work with SERKET Racing as an official partner.
“We are so excited to be working with the great people at the Navy SEAL Museum,” said Marine veteran Llano. “Their dedication to making sure to preserve the legacy of the SEALs is unparalleled, and we are honored to be a part of it.”
