Kurt Busch & Veteran Tickets Foundation to Share Appreciation for Active Military and Veterans this NASCAR Season

Vet Tix & 2004 NASCAR Cup Series Champion to Give Back at NASCAR and Speedway Motorsports Tracks

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Feb. 17, 2024 -- Today, the Veteran Tickets Foundation (Vet Tix) and 2004 NASCAR Cup Series champion Kurt Busch announced a partnership to share appreciation for the service of our dedicated active military and veterans. In collaboration with NASCAR and Speedway Motorsports tracks, Busch will promote Vet Tix throughout the NASCAR season.

"Over my years of racing, I have been inspired by our military history. The men and women who have served, give me the inspiration to be the best I can be," said Busch. "To all that have served and are currently serving, I want to thank you, and commemorate your service with tickets to every NASCAR race." 

As part of the partnership with Vet Tix, Busch will actively promote the organization throughout the season with appearances at racetracks and events with active military and veterans. Busch has long been an advocate for Vet Tix as he has donated NASCAR race tickets over numerous seasons.

"Vet Tix is honored to continue to partner with Kurt Busch and NASCAR tracks to support our members of the military, veterans, and their families by creating memories and sending them to races through this enduring partnership," said Vet Tix Founder, CEO and U.S. Navy Veteran, Michael A. Focareto III.

Veteran Tickets Foundation (Vet Tix) is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides free tickets to sporting events, concerts, performing arts, and family activities to currently serving military members, veterans of all eras, and immediate family of those killed in action. Since 2008, Vet Tix has distributed over 20 million free event tickets to over 1.8 million members.

In 2018, Vet Tix launched 1st Tix, which provides the same benefit to our nation's first responders, including current and retired law enforcement officers, firefighters, EMTs, and 911 Dispatchers. These events help Vet Tix, 1st Tix members, and their families reduce stress, strengthen family bonds, build lifelong memories, and encourage them to stay engaged with American life and their local communities. Vet Tix spends over 99 percent of its revenue on its programs, ensuring we give back to those who have given so much. Visit and to learn more.
