A nationwide drug prevention and education program aimed at educating today's youth about the dangers of substance abuse was developed in May 1990 in partnership with: National Child Safety Council, Department of Justice (FBI, DEA, OJJDP), Center for Substance Abuse Prevention, Department of Health and Human Services, and 22 motorsports sanctioning organizations.
With the assistance from FBI and DEA agents and America's motorsports celebrities, the program conveyed to youth that there is no such thing as "harmless" drug use. Additionally, through the color, speed, and excitement of motorsports, the program provided young people with creative options to deal successfully with drug issues that face them on a day-to-day basis.
Since its inception, a national network of committed and dedicated volunteers has implemented over 2,000 programs at shopping malls, schools, communities, and motorsports events throughout the country.
NCSC is proud that this was the first time in the history of the FBI that such a partnership had been established.
