Team owner and driver Alex McBain served in the elite U.S. Army’s 2nd Ranger Battalion. He and his sons opened Universally Modified Performance building on their passion for horsepower and racing after more than a decade on the racing circuit. Through racing, Alex identified something about racing that filled a void left by leaving the military. “Two of the biggest hurdles when re-entering civilian life after Ranger Battalion were the loss of mission, and the loss of the team. Motorsports offers both,” says Alex. This drove him to develop the Veterans Motorsports Program that connects veterans with various opportunities to get involved in motorsport at any skill or ability level. From driving to marketing, crew to hospitality, there is room for everyone to get involved!
