And although winning is special, there’s a more important cause in Daniel and his team’s hearts that provides tremendous motivation.

Through the Race to Stop Suicide program, Daniel Dye Racing works to support behavioral service programs for children and adolescents, as well as education and training for the local community and various places the team competes.

Since the introduction of Race to Stop Suicide on Daniel’s #43, he and the team have received multiple messages from folks who were profoundly impacted by its presence. In two instances, the person indicated their intent to commit suicide but were steered in a new direction after seeing Daniel’s car and social media messaging.

Suicide is a preventable public health problem and a leading cause of death in the United States. More investment in suicide prevention, education and research will prevent the untimely deaths of thousands of Americans each year.

Hope can happen

Suicide is not inevitable for anyone. By starting the conversation, providing support,
and directing help to those who need it, we can prevent suicides and save lives.

We Can All Take Action

Evidence shows that providing support services, talking about suicide, reducing access
to means of self-harm, and following up with loved ones are just some of the actions
we can all take to help others.

Crisis Centers are Critical

By offering immediate counseling to everyone that may need it, local crisis centers provide invaluable support at critical times and connect individuals to local services.
