SoloRider's single rider golf car was a part of the RE/MAX World Long Drive [WLD] Championship in Mesquite, Nevada. RE/MAX is also a major sponsor of Sentinels of Freedom Scholarship Foundation. Joey Bozik, a triple amputee injured in Iraq, was awarded a scholarship by Sentinels and was featured at the RE/MAX "Salute to the Troops" Military Long Drive Championship. This was the first such event in the prestigious long driving event.
Joey, who owns two SoloRider single rider golf cars, hit the ceremonial first ball of the military long drive contest, using one of his cars. The crowd responded to Joey's drive down the middle of the fairway with a standing ovation and called for him to hit a second drive... Joey hit another one right down the middle!
Competitions held during the year at 25 U S military installations determined the top five who competed for the Military Long Drive title and $10,000. Art Sellinger, WLD's chief executive said, "I am proud to partner with the MWR". SoloRider is also proud to be a part of the event and support the troops.
