Operation Wheels of Freedom was created to honor, entertain and educate the men and women serving the U.S. armed forces. We honor and entertain by connecting these troops with American made performance vehicles, which remind them that they are never far from home. Each event staged is meant to be a heartfelt salute to our sons and daughters who dutifully preserve our nation's freedom. These are the principles that guide us.
Let us not forget our nation's brave men and women in uniform. The unparalleled personal freedoms all Americans enjoy are secured by those who dutifully stand their watch around the world. These men and women and their families deserve to know that their countless sacrifices and devout service to country are appreciated. Help us prepare a safe and sound homecoming for these sons and daughters who have served their country in the US Military.
OWOFF was founded in 2005 to fulfill the special request of a deployed soldier in Iraq who asked a stateside friend if he would come to Baghdad and entertain the troops with his racecar. Based on that initial request, and emboldened by the similar personal experiences of several program founders dating back to the Vietnam War, a team was formed.
Our engaging, motor vehicle safety programs address the unique motor vehicle safety challenges that many of our young veterans face when they return home from deployment. Find out more about our specialized training methodology, and the powerful and effective way our participants are impacted.
The OWOFF team is composed of philanthropic automotive enthusiasts and event professionals who truly appreciate the sacrifices military service members and their families make when answering their call to duty. We believe it’s our responsibility and privilege to honor, educate and entertain these wonderful men and women who defend America.
To better serve families of military service members, we reserve Saturdays during our tour, for “Family Day” celebrations. Service members and their families are invited trackside to the site of OWOFF training to be entertained during a special interactive car show staged by our team members.
