Stay on Track, RAD Racing Team Keep Youth Safe

Through Stay on Track and the RAD Racing Team, the NCPRS keeps communities and children safe and drug-free. That's why, beginning this season, Stay on Track and RAD Racing Team are new partners of the ARCA Safety Initiative. With the partnership, ARCA can take a leading step toward ensuring the health and safety of our nation's youth.

Stay on Track is a motorsports-themed, drug-free, healthy lifestyle curriculum developed by the National Center for Prevention and Research Solutions, a recognized leader in the prevention arena for over 20 years. Stay on Track provides children with the tools needed to make good decisions, maintain a positive "pit crew" - or network of friends, improve their communication skills, and live healthy, drug-free lives. Since 2006, the NCPRS has reached over 400,000 middle school students with the Stay on Track curriculum in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Costa Rica.

The RAD Racing Team is a network of volunteers dedicated to promoting a healthy, drug-free lifestyle to our nation's youth. RAD provides a framework for motorsports professionals and enthusiasts to incorporate a drug-free message into their racing interests, allowing them to advocate for and serve their communities. A network of RAD spokepersons provides children with role models who educate, inform, and encourage them to make responsible choices, set appropriate goals, and refrain from abusing illicit substances. arcasafetyinitiative.jpg

The relationship with the ARCA Safety Initiative will begin next week at the Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 at Daytona International Speedway, as Jeremy Petty and Larry Barford Jr. will run the Stay on Track and RAD Racing Team logos in the 80-lap season opener.
