START A CHAPTER:
Youth Impact Racing seeks to train and equip local volunteers to start chapters in their own communities. Youth Impact Racing will come along side you with training, coaching and equipping. We offer all necessary track equipment, RC cars, and curriculum needed to facilitate an on-going 8 week program.
If you are interested in starting a chapter of Youth Impact Racing in your local church or community, please contact us for detailed information at

YIR has opened our doors to the community. We host RC racing indoors during our long Minnesota winter. Using some old rolls of carpet and portable staging, we set up an indoor track in our gym on Tuesdays, October to April. We start with a welcome, overview, and faith talk - then jump right in with racing, classroom learning, and leadership training.
The community response has been far greater than expected and we always have a great team of volunteers. How do you get started? Just walk down the street with an RC car and kids will come running! Create an info flyer and invite. It is that simple to get families who have driven past our church for years to come in the door.
We have had 50 boys and girls from the community who came 3 or more times during the season. We have just begun to be creative on how to serve these families and share the reason behind what we do!
