The 2023 Top Dog Championship is in the Record Book!

65 military motorsports enthusiasts met on the Shenandoah Circuit at Summit Point Motorsports Park, West Virginia, on October 1, 2023, to do battle for the coveted DVEN/Rally4Vets Top Dog Trophy.

In contrast to 2021 and 2022 when Army emerged victorious, 2023 witnessed the Marine Corps taking the trophy by a razor-thin margin over Army - 365 to 345.

The 2023 Rally4Vets Top Dog Championships

Thanks to our participants, spectators, sponsors, and volunteers for giving us a great day of camaraderie and helping us fund a service dog for a disabled veteran in need.  Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 12, 2024.  There are just 65 grid slots!

The Top Dog Championships

The annual DVEN/Rally4Vets Tops Dog Championships provide the amateur motorsports community the opportunity to reduce the annual veteran suicide death toll and sponsors the opportunity to engage with the 10+ million active-duty and veteran community.

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 championships 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."

We look forward to seeing you at our 2024 events!
