Anglesey, Wales (November 13, 2022) – Two-time touring car champion and CrowdStrike Racing/AWS driver Kevin Boehm closed out a winning 2022 season by participating in the 2022 Race of Remembrance (RoR), held November 11-13, 2022, at Anglesey Circuit, Wales, UK with the non-profit veterans organization, Operation Motorsport.
For the RoR event, Boehm was one of eight drivers representing the USA and Canada. Operation Motorsport was the only North American team competing in the 12-hour sports car endurance race, which was highlighted by a pit lane Remembrance Service on Sunday morning.
The Operation Motorsport team was composed of Canadian and American active duty military personnel, veterans, Skip Barber Racing School staff, donors, and drivers like Boehm, who was invited / sponsored to lend engineering support and drive as a member of the team by Amazon Web Services (AWS). The team fielded two Honda Racing / HPD Civic Type R TCs for the event and the liveries of both cars featured the names of more than 600 active duty military, veterans, and loved ones on the hoods, including major contributions from the veterans’ groups at AWS and CrowdStrike.
Although many of the team’s beneficiaries had not met before the event, they competed against many well prepared and professional teams and finished P6 and P8 in class (P8 and P12 overall). This exceeded expectations and demonstrated the power of veteran recovery through motorsport.
“We’ve been working with Operation Motorsport since 2020, aiding in the recovery of their beneficiaries by embedding them within the CrowdStrike Racing/AWS team throughout the race season,” Boehm said. “Thanks to our partnership with AWS and our shared vision for helping wounded warriors, I was thrilled to participate in the Race of Remembrance with Operation Motorsport. At race events we typically focus on competing, but at the Race of Remembrance, the focus was on teamwork, recovery, setting the beneficiaries up for success, honoring our veterans, and remembering the fallen. Enormously proud of the work our beneficiaries did at the event–you enabled the team to carry the names on the hoods of the cars with honor.”
Operation Motorsport beneficiaries will continue to work with the CrowdStrike Racing/AWS team, including Boehm, during the 2023 race season.
Race of Remembrance will return next year, November 10th-12th, 2023.

Kevin Boehm was showing off his Honda Civic “R” at his auto workshop in rural Union County last week and said that this particular model was available to anybody, but to be sure, there are very few of them out there. The production numbers for this particular four-door were limited indeed.
Manufactured by Honda Performance Development, the Honda ‘R’ at Mr. Boehm’s shop is not exactly like one that you would find on a showroom floor. These particular cars are built and developed specifically to A. win, B. gather information to allow advancements to be made so the cars can go even faster, and C. win. Read more.
Kevin Boehm and the team behind the No. 9 Honda Civic Type R will be eager to end the season on a high note, following a weekend of highs and lows at Sebring International Raceway last week. Remarkably, Boehm had his first DNF of the season, where the engineer and race car driver have so far earned six podiums and an additional three top-five finishes so far this season. Boehm and DXDT currently stand third in the TC driver and team standings, and still mathematically in the 2021 battle for the championship titles. Read more.
Kevin Boehm’s performance of steady progression throughout the year continued at Sebring International Raceway, starting with him earning pole position in race one for TC America. He ran up front for the majority of race one until a competitor with a more advantageous setup managed to charge through the field from the rear to the front and take the win. In race two, Boehm started from fourth place, and climbed through the pack to race in first, but his race ended early after a damper broke, resulting in his first incomplete race of the season.
"Sebring was an up and down event for me. It started off strong in qualifying with pole position. I led a bunch of laps in race one and eventually fell to the second position, where we finished. I’m really happy with that result, especially since we have struggled in hot races in the past. Race two started off strong as well from fourth. We were leading by the end of the first lap and stayed there for a while, but got passed by a couple of cars. We were racey and had a good chance of moving forward at the end of the race. But we had a mechanical problem on the car and were unable to finish. We’re working on fixing that now and we’ll be ready for Indianapolis." Read more.
