Jack Zimmerman spent his childhood at the dirt track. Weekends and late nights were made up of working in the shop  and cheering on his dad as he raced stock car across the Midwest. Once Zimmerman graduated high school, he joined the U.S. Army as an infantryman and trained to deploy with the legendary 101st Airborne Division. Zimmerman spent nine grueling months in Afghanistan, taking on heavy fire every day and regularly locating and detonating IEDs. One day, during a routine dismounted patrol, Zimmerman stepped on a IED.  He remembers the moment; flying through the air, the heat of fire rushing up his back and landing hard in the Afghan dirt, as he tried to access his injuries, he realized how catastrophically injured he really was and, in that moment, his entire life flashed before his eyes. Zimmerman lost both of his legs and his mobility that day and spent the next two years of his life learning to live from a wheelchair. When he moved home to Minnesota, he was excited to introduce his wife and young sons to the sport of dirt track racing, but his dreams of driving his own race car were crushed with the loss of his legs. 


A great act of patriotism at a small town dirt track sparked an idea in Zimmerman to create something bigger than himself- a race team to raise awareness for Veterans and the incredible nonprofits that support them. Warfare Motorsports was founded with the mission to promote awareness for Veterans, one lap at a time, racing for a cause. 


We have to thank our fans, our friends and really just the good people who believed in this. Supporting Veterans remains our top priority and we appreciate the continued financial support of our sponsors.
