ABOUT  YOUTH IMPACT RACING

​MISSION & HISTORY

MISSION:  Youth Impact Racing (YIR) exists to proclaim Christ to students through the avenue of racing. We provide life skills training and mentor-ship through an experiential remote-control car program.

 

We strive to teach young people all they need to know about cars and racing. Theory and hands-on skills are taught through an integrated program utilizing classroom training and remote-control car racing.

 

Youth Impact Racing is a non-denominational Christian program creating a safe place where students can grow and flourish.  

HISTORY:  Founder of Youth Impact Racing, Adam Brachle, has had a love of all things related to motor sports since childhood. Growing up as the son of an airline pilot, he learned to fly airplanes at the early age of 5 and became a licensed pilot at age 18. His father (who is also a trained mechanic) taught Adam more than just the basics when it comes to auto maintenance, but instilled in him enough knowledge to allow Adam to become a fleet mechanic later in life. Adam received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Pastoral Leadership from Crown College in 2005.

Since 2007, while serving as a lay leader in his church, Adam also served a youth missions organization as their fleet manager/mechanic. In 2008, Adam began to feel stirrings to start a ministry to teach students skills that would be beneficial in life and reach them with the Gospel at the same time. After several years of research, strategic thinking, prayer and counsel, Youth Impact Racing was born in the fall of 2013. Click here to learn more about Adam’s vision for and the birth of YIR.
