Military Veterans, Don Schumacher Racing team make first brain pledges to Project Enlist
When racing legend Don Schumacher heard about CLF Project Enlist and its mission, he felt compelled to get involved and help raise awareness for the program by pledging to donate his brain. Each of Don Schumacher Racing’s (DSR) seven drivers – Jack Beckman, Antron Brown, Ron Capps, Matt Hagan, Tommy Johnson Jr., Leah Pritchett and Tony Schumacher – immediately followed suit.
DSR’s pledge at Bandimere Speedway during the Dodge Mile-High National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Nationals Friday afternoon marked the first time an entire team had made the commitment.
