Street Survival events added to Calendar


June 11, 2013 by Brian Ghidinelli

The Tire Rack Street Survival program is one that is near and dear to our hearts here at world headquarters. It's an outgrowth of the BMW CCA Car Control Clinic program tailored for teenagers to keep them safe on the road. The statistics indicate they sorely need it:

"Last year, over 5,000 teenagers died in motor vehicle crashes, the leading killer of American youths aged 16 to 19, accounting for more than 40 percent of fatalities in that age bracket. To reduce this number, Tire Rack Street Survival® has developed a non-profit, national driver education program aimed at teaching teens the skills they need to stay alive behind the wheel."

There's a short 45-second video introduction that gives some idea as to the idea behind Street Survival:

This is a truly phenomenal program that has grown beyond the BMW CCA Foundation and is now backed by other motorsports groups such as the SCCA. While a lot of motorsports is about fun and glory, it's hard not to get excited about saving lives! That's why we are proud to be promoting Street Survival events on our national events calendar.

Street Survival events now listed on calendar!

They will also be included in our monthly calendar blasts which reach several thousand enthusiasts (and parents...) around the country.

If you have a teen or know someone with a teen, a one-day Street Survival course is the best $60 a parent can spend. Take two minutes, right now, and email five parents about this program!
