The annual DVEN/Rally4Vets Tops Dog Championship provides the amateur motorsports community the opportunity to reduce the annual veteran suicide death toll.

The competition is open to everyone: veterans, active duty personnel, and civilian drivers who simply wish to support their veteran community.

Drivers compete in classes based on their car's technical specifications and their own driving experience.  This ensures everyone competes on an equal basis.

The DVEN/Rally4Vets op Dog Championships are the only inter-service military motorsports championship in the world!

The team that accumulates the most points across all categories is the overall Top Dog Champion for the year.  Each car class crowns an individual Top Dog Champion.  Winners join the DVEN/Rally4Vets "Top DGZ."
