LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - On Thursday, The Shack BBQ hosted a few dirt track race cars from a team they sponsor: Taylor Racing.

Jay Taylor, one of the drivers for Taylor Racing, along with his brother Scott, spoke with KCBD about a cause close to his heart.

"We're losing men and women who have served. Who've risked their lives for this country and they come home and though we've been trained to serve and trained to fight, we haven't been trained to come home."

Taylor was a Navy Corpsman who had to retire due to medical issues in the early 2000s. When he came home, he experienced Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Now Taylor uses his racing to bring attention to PTSD the Disabled American Veterans Charity, which he credits for helping save his life.

Jay Taylor also talked a lot about his family. Jay races with his brother, Scott, and their oldest brother Keith is the team mechanic.

Taylor racing will be competing at the West Texas Raceway in South Lubbock Friday night.
