Amazing Americans... ready to fight...anytime, anywhere

Frances E. Warren Air Force Base, Cheyenne WY-  Day two of the Air Force Global Strike Command 'Baja Adaptive 1000 Tour', hit this historic base in true 'Baja Racing Style'... full throttle today.  From breakfast with young airmen to a mission brief by the 90th Wing Commander Colonel Coffelt, the world's best adaptive amputee motocross racers absorbed the 90th Missile Wing of Air Force Global Strike Commands mission: "Provide Preeminent Combat Capability Across the Spectrum of Conflict."

For former Navy Corpsmen Paul Thomas, owner of Julian Hard Cider who served our country during the Gulf War in the Middle East, the journey from creation of 'Hero Racing' to visiting Airmen here at F.E. Warren has been one of paying it forward "I'm just so honored to be standing here sharing my friends with all of you... connecting with Robi and American300's Never Quit Series is just the best" commented Thomas in front of a group of Logistics Readiness Squadron members here today " we want you guys to go outside and do something this summer... get away from the stresses of this amazing job that you all do for our country and just have some serious fun."  he added, referring to the soon to be announced program that American300 hopes to 'bolt on' to this first ever 'Baja Adaptive 1000 Tour'.  A program that will encourage AFGSC Airmen to get outdoors and share the experience in photos, stories or video (or all of the above) in a contest to see who will be selected to visit JHC Hero Racing and the world's best amputee motocross racers in a southern California pre-Baja 1000 training camp in November.

"We added an incentive to the Olympian Rowing Tour that rolled through the command back in early April.. the winner of that 'challenge' (SSG Jarrod White, F.E. Warren AFB) will be traveling with us to London next month to meet members of the British Armed Forces who will be working behind the scenes to keep the London Summer Olympic Games as secure as possible"  says Powers " We all know that this 'Live Outside... Do Something Amazing' campaign will be similar in nature... we're going to see some great stuff going on within the command and ultimately we'll be sponsoring 3 lucky Airmen to a very special camp to witness the true behind the scenes preparation that goes into this first ever effort."

Special athletes meeting some of America's most amazing service members...

As the Baja Adaptive 1000 Team of XGames Medalists; Chris Ridgway, Mike Schultz, Jim Wazny and Paul Thomas pack up their duffle bags tonight they'll be headed to Malmstrom Air Force Base in the early morning. "This is my first time on a American300 Never Quit Series tour and I can't get my arms around just how much I've learned about the nuclear missile mission" shared Jim Wazny while the team discussed the past 40 hours spent at F.E. Warren with teammates Ridgway, Schultz and Thomas tonight.

Thomas the teams manager responded "Amazing Americans... Ready to Fight...Anytime, Anywhere... so that we can feel comfortable... so that we can compete in the 45th running of the Baja 1000 this fall."
