Last April, at the Global RallyCross Championship round “Twin Peaks,” Tanner Foust, Dave Mirra and the rest of the GRC stars raced through a 500 foot long, turn of the century industrial building, went power sliding around a muddy “boneyard” and over a 70-foot gap jump.  It was an inspiring site, but no more so than for Daniel Gale, executive director of Adaptive Action Sports, Inc.

After witnessing the event, Gale put together a camp at the DirtFish Rally School, the venue for the Twin Peaks edition of the Global RallyCross Championship that allowed a group of permanently disabled, wounded veterans to get behind the wheel of rally cars for some full throttle training.  The life changing experience for these veterans from the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan culminated a few months later when they traveled to X Games 17 in Los Angeles to meet Foust and Mirra and watch as rally cars took to Figueroa Street for the first time ever.
