Hot Shot’s Secret Announces a Year of Fundraising to Support Battle Scarred Motorsports

Hot Shot’s Secret has announced a year of fundraising activity designed to support Battle Scarred Motorsports (BSM). Battle Scarred Motorsports, formerly USMC Racing, assists disabled service members and first responders by providing “adrenaline therapy” through racing opportunities on the track and in the pits. 

Money raised starting in March through the end of the year will help convert vehicles into hand-controlled race cars, provide scholarships for racers to participate and ensure their vehicles are operating at optimum performance.

Additionally, Hot Shot’s Secret is providing all of the team’s needed fluids, including racing engine oil, transmission fluid, gear oil, oil and fuel additives for the race team and their diesel haulers used to tow the race cars. 

The fundraising activity is structured to provide opportunities for matching donations throughout the year. Beginning March 22-31, Hot Shot’s Secret will donate $2.00 to BSM for every bottle of Gasoline Extreme purchased on their company website for the first 1,000 bottles for a potential donation of $2,000. 

In May, Hot Shot’s Secret will match donations up to $6,000 during back-to-back race weeks for the Battle Scarred Motorsports online fundraising campaign from 5/13 – 5/15 (Oklahoma race week) and 5/20 to 5/22 (Georgia race week.) 

In June and July, Hot Shot’s Secret will help fund the organization’s scholarship program that helps finance racer participation with a $6,000 donation, which will be used to cover the costs needed to put more military and first responders behind the wheel of a BSM race car. 

In September, Hot Shot’s Secret will pledge funds, up to $4,000 for a donation per lap during BSM’s race in Kentucky from 9/23/22 – 9/25/22. 

And at the end of the season, Hot Shot’s Secret will show their appreciation for these disabled heroes by kicking off a holiday shopping season for Black Friday with a donation given to Battle Scarred Motorsports for purchases made via Amazon Smile. Also, Hot Shot’s Secret will be donating up to $4,000 in matched donations to help fulfill needs on BSM’s charity wish list so the team may purchase much needed race parts at the end of the season to be better prepared for 2023. 

Hot Shot’s Secret Director of Branding & Promotions, Kyle Fischer says, “Hot Shot’s Secret is well known for its support of veterans and first responders with years of donations to Battle Scarred Motorsports and Waypoint Vets. This is a cause that means a great deal to our founder, Chris Gabrelcik and the entire Hot Shot’s Secret team. I was fortunate to spend a weekend at the racetrack with the Battle Scarred Motorsports team in Texas and was humbled at the power of their mission to help those heroes in need. The therapy, determination and fun that our veterans receive from participating in a sport that they love is very gratifying and we are excited for the season to begin.” To view Hot Shot’s Secret’s trip to MSR Houston in 2020 and learn more about BSM, click here.

Battle Scarred Motorsports Founder and CEO, Brian Czech says, “We are so grateful of Hot Shot’s Secret’s enthusiasm for our organization that provides our much-appreciated U.S. Service Members, past and present, and first responders the opportunity to race. This year, we have multiple ways for the race community to support our organization throughout the season. In all, we are looking at a potential of $22,000 in matching funds which is significant and desperately needed to help fund our mission. I’m honored to say that our program saves lives, and we couldn’t do it without the generous support we receive from Hot Shot’s Secret and all of our supporting donors.”
