March 15, 2018


(Blooming Prairie MN March 15, 2018) – The Wyakin Foundation is known for helping wounded veterans transition from active duty to civilian life, and now the Minimizer Bandit Big Rig Series wants to do its part to help.

Fans will have the chance to donate to the Wyakin Foundation at every single Bandit race in 2018.

"We're really excited," Minimizer Chief Visionary Officer and Bandit Big Rig Series owner Craig Kruckeberg said. "We've donated to Wyakin in the past, and it's a fantastic organization dedicated to helping our veterans."

"We're thrilled to be a part of the Bandit Big Rig Series in 2018," Wyakin executive director Brent Taylor said. "We really appreciate their support."

The Wyakin Foundation equips wounded veterans with the resources needed to find long-term success. Their support includes mentorship, development of professional skills, financial support, tutoring and networking.

Essentially, whatever it takes to help veterans get from point A to point B.

"Our organization has a 95 percent success rate transitioning veterans back into the workforce," Taylor said. "80 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to the programs that serve our veterans, so you can be sure your money is changing lives."

Bandit fans will find a Wyakin booth at every race, where they can learn more about the program and donate to the cause.

In addition to the physical donation box found at each race, fans can also make donations via the Bandit's ticket page (free will donation to register for the Fan Series Truck Show) or directly on the Wyakin website via a link from the Bandit website.

"We want to provide several different ways to donate just so fans can choose whichever one is easiest for them," Kruckeberg said.
