SOS is really pleased to welcome Tom Muffler to our rehydrated champions. Not only is he a great driver and bloke, but he also races for the Amred Forces Mororsports Race Team.
Supporting our troops is something that is very close to SOS founders hearts as one of them (James) served in the British Military for 6 years.
As such we were super excited to have Tom on board and congratulate him for all his hard work towards our troops.
SOS would also like to thank our troops for their day to day heroism, dedication and keeping us safe.
Tom entered the world of motorsports early in the 1990’s by competing in Go-Karts. Tom quickly realized Karting success and earned the class championship in his first year of participation. Karting’s solid foundation eased the transition into racing a Formula Ford in the Skip Barber Racing Series.
Tom retired from auto racing in the late 1990’s to pursue family life, his entrepreneurial ambitions and started a career as a professional fire fighter. He went from fast cars, to fast trucks! Racing has always been a passion and he kept his dream alive to someday return to the sport. Tom will be joining the IndyCar Series in 2014, driving in the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Series, powered by Mazda. Tom will be driving an open-wheel, single-seat, open-cockpit car with front and rear wings. Powered by the Mazda MZR 2-liter powerplant – a four-cylinder, double-overhead cam, fuel-injected engine generating approximately 170 horsepower is capable of powering the car to speeds of 150 mph.
Tom’s history of giving back to the community is as great a passion as his need for speed. He needed to use his race car and team to reach out to Veterans, to show that we appreciate them, and care for them. Tom Uses his racing exposure and promotional background as a way to honor and support our Service Members, to raise awareness about Military PTSD, and to support those Heroes who suffer from these invisible wounds of war.
“I am very proud to be a driver for the United States Armed Forces Motorsports Racing Team. I am racing to honor and support our Veterans, to raise awareness of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) in our military, and support our active duty troops and Veterans who suffer from these invisible wounds of war.”
