The SERKET Racing team was created in 2012 to help veterans across America. Founder Mark Llano, a 5-year veteran of the United States Marine Corps and avid racing fan, saw an immediate parallel between the adrenaline of a warrior and the thrill of the racetrack. Knowing first-hand the struggles our veterans face today, Llano created Serket to changes the lives of our U.S. veterans and their families with every race and every win.
From its creation, the Serket team found success in both the racing industry and the veteran community. In its first season alone, Serket donated to over 11 veteran organizations and ended the season with a standing ovation from fellow competitors and fans, showing the admiration Serket had gained in the racing industry. 2014 was no different. Serket had 4 top-10, podium finishes and placed fifth in overall standings. And on the veteran side, the team worked with sponsors such as Kaplan University and Wells Fargo to issue more than 250 educational scholarships, donate three homes to struggling veterans, and give away thousands of dollars in the struggle to solve America’s veteran crisis.
Serket is driven to lead the way in both the auto racing industry and veteran support community, and the team’s trajectory is a testament to the difference Serket has made and will continue to make with every season.
