ChalleNGe at Indy
Since 2009, the National Guard Youth Foundation has partnered with Panther Racing to host multiple events at IndyCar Races across the country. The events showcase the local Youth ChalleNGe Program and its cadets and help raise awareness and support for the ChalleNGe Program. The events not only introduce the cadets to career opportunities available in the racing league, but also invite the community to learn more about how to combat the dropout issue our nation is facing.
