The Kingdom Racing Foundation, a 501(c)3 corporation, is comprised of the following elements:
- Contributions Campaigns to fund the Foundation
- Race Fan Festivals
- Miles of Smiles VIP Outreach
- Infield Ambassadors
- Prayer Team
Every contribution to the Kingdom Racing Foundation helps support these programs and allows us to continue our charged mission to deliver God's Word through Motorsports.
The 2013 Fan Festivals are scheduled to be held at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the month of May preceding the 97th running of the Indianapolis 500, Texas Motor Speedway in June for the Firestone 550, and at Reliant Park the first weekend in October during the Shell and Pennzoil Grand Prix of Houston.
Each Fan Festival will be uniquely tailored to the host venue and locale but all will consist of a team of trained Infield Ambassadors sharing God's Word to race fans. Fans will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with an authentic INDYCAR, experience sensational Christian praise entertainment, hear incredible testimonies and participate in autograph sessions from famous sports personalities including racing drivers.
Miles of Smiles events connect with local church ministers and congregations to nominate families and children who could greatly benefit from a VIP race day experience behind the scenes with an INDYCAR team unlike any other. In short, Miles of Smiles is one of the most personal methods by which we serve as the Hands and Feet of Jesus Christ to minister to others in an arena packed with superstar athletes and thousands of screaming fans. For the 2013 Season, we will be holding a minimum of ten Miles of Smiles outreach events throughout the INDYCAR calendar from St. Petersburg in March all the way through to the October season finale in Fontana.
On race weekends, we host the nominated Miles of Smiles guests in true VIP style at the race track, whether it's the Davey Hamilton Racing suite at Indianapolis or the team hospitality unit at other venues. Guest families receive full credential access for the event, the opportunity to meet and hang out with celebrities and drivers, goodie bags full of fun stuff to take home, but most importantly, a lifetime of cherished memories.
Kingdom Racing Ambassadors are trained men and women who volunteer to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with race fans. Infield Ambassadors go through a two month training program taught by Kingdom Racing team members featuring the highly acclaimed "Way of The Master" series hosted by Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort. Each Ambassador learns to share their faith in a non-threatening manner and then participates in a mission trip to a selected Kingdom Racing INDYCAR event.
Kingdom Racing practices what we preach beginning with prayer. We have a 24x7 prayer group comprised of team personnel and seasoned prayer intercessors.

About Kingdom Racing: In 2008, Kingdom Racing made history as the first faith-based team to compete in the Indianapolis 500. To date, we have five years of proven race performance with IZOD INDYCAR drivers Davey Hamilton, Martin Plowman and Simon Pagenaud. The 2012 season was a turning point for Kingdom Racing as our first full season of participation in the IZOD INDYCAR Series. Our unique approach combines motorsports with Christian ministry and outreach. Our goal is to use INDYCAR racing as a platform to reach millions for Christ. "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6:23.
