The hit song “Youth of the Nation” was written at a time when the U.S. was reeling from the shootings at Santana High School and Columbine High School. As we all well know, mass shootings are becoming a common occurrence in campuses and other public venues across the country.



It’s getting worse, not better.
P.O.D. wrote this song to bring awareness to the plight of millennial youth 19 years ago,
and it rings even more true for those of Generation Z.

But what’s actually being done?
How do we get to the root of this issue
and turn things around?

Every morning, millions of our nation’s youth wake up to another day in a broken home, to absent parents, to another day in fear of being bullied, to another day with not enough food to eat…

These issues put our youth at greater risk for violence, drug abuse, disease, lack of education or employment and more. These childhood traumas often create overly stressed out, even mentally imbalanced adults.

Our kids need a voice, and we need to listen. 

“Maybe this kid was reaching out for love
Or maybe for a moment
He forgot who he was
Or maybe this kid just wanted to be hugged
Whatever it was
I know it’s because
We are, We are, the youth of the nation”

youth of the nation – P.O.D.


Continuing with their message through ministry and grassroots movement, P.O.D. has partnered with Premium Motorsports and One Light Events to bring the Youth of the Nation campaign across America via their own custom race car.

This car is set to race on some of the most famous race tracks in the country.

IN 2020 our goal is to, literally,

break the race

Traditionally, racers have been funded by big budget entities for a massive profit. 

We’re flipping the script to give it all back.

What better way to raise awareness than by putting the Youth of the Nation in front of tens of millions of viewers every week? 

It’s time to use the platform we have been given to change the country, and even the world, for good.

100% of net proceeds will go to ensuring that today’s youth get the support they need to grow into healthy, happy adults.
Just a few of our many efforts include: spreading the power of positivity and inclusion to schools to empower students, connecting kids to support systems to better deal with pressing issues and providing safe homes for underprivileged families to ease health and financial stress.




Not only will we support the 2020 race season during the Youth of the Nation/ Break The Race campaign, we also will be taking our message to towns most affected in our country. We want those who have lost their lives to such brokenness to be remembered, and we stand united with all those in favor of a safer America.


For every special exclusive Break the Race/Youth of The Nation shirt or hat purchased you are becoming a part of the combined “all in” support of positive change for the safety of loved ones and fellow neighbors everywhere.

Our youth shouldn’t be afraid to go to school.

The message is becoming the same, “Shots Fired.”

If you do not want that to be the final message, show your stance in our call to action.
