a moving tribute
All eyes will be on the Legistics/Veristor/YouRulz Bimmerworld BMW at the 2018 IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca on September 8, 2018. The new #81 BMW 328i is a blazing fast racecar driven by fearless competitors and supported by a great team.

Alzheimer’s afflicts 5 million Americans and 50 million people worldwide, with tragic consequences for the individuals, families and societies grappling with its devastating effects.
A degenerative brain disease, Alzheimer’s currently has no cure. However, enormous progress is being made toward understanding the nature and mechanisms of the disease; formulating new treatments and diagnostics; and providing effective and compassionate support for overwhelmed caregivers. Every day brings new hope.
These promising new developments deserve our urgent, full-throttle help. The non-profit Racing to End Alzheimer’s Foundation is dedicated to raising awareness and funds for the cutting edge research, treatment and support services that will end the scourge of Alzheimer’s once and for all.

funding the cure.
Donations from the first Racing to End Alzheimers event were split between two deserving organizations. The Nantz National Alzheimers Center does cutting edge research to help find a cure. UCLA Cognitive Health Clinic provides much-needed care for families of Alzheimer’s sufferers. This year, donations will be determined by our participants, with the top three requests receiving the funds. So add your loved one’s name for Racing to End Alzheimer’s at Mazda Raceway in WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca on September 8, 2018.
Last year, in just 6 weeks, we got almost 5,000 fans on our Racing to End Alzheimer’s page on Facebook. If you’re one of them, we’re enormously grateful to you for helping to spread the word and keep this cause alive.
Now we need you to get back into the action. Post on Facebook and Instagram. Tell your friends. Donate.

about the race team
Nick Galante was half of the team that won the championship in 2016 and nearly did it again in 2017, coming in third for the season. With a new car and his new driving partner Devin Jones, our team started the year with a first-place win at Daytona Beach, and a top-five finish at Sebring! Backed up by a seasoned and unflappable crew, the #81 Legistics/Veristor/YouRulz Bimmerworld BMW is the car to beat in this year’s IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge.
