Feeding America

Following Race Two of Six

Prior to the Dodge Power Brokers U.S. Nationals, Kalitta Motorsports introduced the 2023 “Race to End Hunger,” a partnership among Kalitta Motorsports, DHL Express and Kalitta Air to accelerate the fight against food insecurity. For six NHRA Camping World Drag Racing national events, starting with the U.S. Nationals and ending with the Nevada NHRA Nationals in Las Vegas, every time a Kalitta Motorsports driver turns on a race day win light, Kalitta Motorsports will donate $1,000 to Feeding America, and both DHL and Kalitta Air will match the donation. At the second race this past weekend, Kalitta Motorsports turned on five win lights bringing the 2023 program total to 11:

Indianapolis: J.R. Todd (3), Doug Kalitta (2), Shawn Langdon (1); money donated: $18,000; meals generated 180,000

Reading: Doug Kalitta (4), Shawn Langdon (1), J.R. Todd (0); money donated: $15,000; meals generated: 150,000

Totals To-Date: Money Donated $33,000; Meals Generated: 330,000

Feeding America established Hunger Action Month in 2008 to create a nationwide push to address the hunger crisis across the United States. Consider:

  • People in the United States who are food insecure: 34 million
  • Children in the United States who are food insecure: 9 million (1 in 8 kids)
  • People who turned to food programs in 2022: 49 million
  • Counties in the United States with food insecurity: 100 percent
