SAVE OUR YOUTH / RACING 4 LIFE  fight against illiteracy and the danger of illegal street racing. Proceeds go to Scholarship Fund to help our youth get an education in the automtive field and employment. They are a 501 c-3 program that teaches social and life skill. Douglas Roeser and Mecca Trotter-Roeser, president and founders of SOY/R4L, said it’s time for area businesses and community leaders to give back to the youth. "We’re trying to keep their minds right," said Roeser. "We provide room for them to build their social skills through drag racing, while we build their literacy and reading skills with our partner in their educational development centers." SOY/R4L is designed to empower youth in Prince George’s County by providing them with alternatives to gangs, drugs, crime and violence. Using motorsports as a catalyst, SOY/R4L encourages students to consider science, technology and racing at an early age to keep their minds off the streets
