R3 is a proud sponsor of Blaster’s Garage. Starting on July 20, 2018, the EOD Warrior Foundation (EODWF) and Quality of Life Plus (QL+)  will host The Blaster’s Garage, a 6-episode on-line car rebuild program, airing on YouTube.

The rebuilt car will be raffled off during a live taping of the final episode, slated for later this year.  The proceeds from this raffle will be given to EODWF and QL+ for programmatic support.  The Blaster’s Garage program will be filmed in Templeton, CA and structured to not only highlight the rebuilding of the car and veteran involvement but also many aspects of the military’s EOD program and facets of military life.  We would like to extend a special thank you to Jim Parminter for donating this vehicle. There are 5000 raffle tickets available, at $100 apiece, potentially raising $500K.
