It's a big racing weekend coming up at Road America. One of the racers will be Milwaukee's Jeff Courtney, who would love to win at his "home" track. But he's also driving for charity.

The Patriot Education Fund raises money to help military personnel with their college educations following their service to the country.

"We're happy to be part of that and it came up through an auction where someone had purchased to be part of our team for the weekend so we're going to swag 'em up and let them hang out with the team all weekend," says Courtney. "Work with the team and get the inside deal.  Hopefully we're going to give them a ride in either the race car or a pace car ride, things like that and just give them the full experience."

Courtney drives in the Pirella World Challenge Series which will race Saturday and Sunday at Road America.
