LAWRENCEVILLE, Georgia - Coltman Farms Racing owner Brett Coltman announced a $1 million charitable donation to the Special Needs Schools of Gwinnett on May 15.

The donation was announced during Coltman Farms Racing’s annual show and tell visit to the facility, which featured the entire team along with drivers Tanner English (Benton, Ky.) and David McCoy (Franklin, N.C.). It comes one year after Coltman made a $150,000 donation in support of the Special Needs Schools of Gwinnett.

"Special Needs Schools of Gwinnett is beyond grateful to everyone at Coltman Farms Racing for their continued support and a truly amazing day on campus,” said Jamie Hamilton, the Executive Director of Special Needs Schools of Gwinnett. “Our students loved meeting David McCoy and Tanner English, seeing their cars, getting the autographs, and some even made it into their drivers' seats.

“Everyone from the team was so kind, patient, and engaging with our kids and went above and beyond to create a wonderful experience. To cap the day off with a $1 million donation is nothing short of a dream.”

The Special Needs Schools of Gwinnett offers classes for children ranging in age from toddlers to high schoolers. The school’s philosophy is that special needs students are children first, with all the needs, desires, and feelings of children without disabilities. They are more like other children than different.

Their disabilities are inconveniences that keep them from enjoying full lives, and therefore must be overcome or compensated for so that the children can grow and move out into the world.

Brett Coltman, who owns Coltman Farms Racing, operates four house cars for English and McCoy, but also sponsors many of dirt racing’s brightest young stars. They include Ricky Thornton Jr. (Martinsville, Ind.), Brandon Sheppard (New Berlin, Ill.), Brandon Overton (Evans, Ga.), Payton Freeman (Commerce, Ga.), Carson Ferguson (Lincolnton, N.C.), Sam Seawright (Fort Payne, Ala.), Benji Hicks (Mount Airy, N.C.), Drake Troutman (Hyndman, Pa.) and Donald McIntosh (Dawsonville, Ga.), among others.

Coltman Farms Racing is also heavily involved in grassroots racing, serving as the title and presenting sponsor of several regional and national touring series.

“Coltman Farms Racing is not just about winning,” Coltman said. “It’s about instilling values and principles that go beyond the track. Those values and principles include giving back to your community. It’s an honor to do just that with this donation.

“We are committed to nurturing a generation of drivers who are not just skilled and competitive, but also embody the spirit of sportsmanship, integrity and the American dream.”

Coltman added that children should aspire to be leaders in their own respective communities. By supplying this donation, Coltman knows the Special Needs Schools of Gwinnett will continue to foster strong characteristics in their students that they can carry with them through the rest of their lives.

Coltman expressed how fulfilling it was to share this experience with the children at the Special Needs Schools of Gwinnett.

“We’re honored to be able to make this $1 million donation to the Special Needs Schools of Gwinnett to help them provide care and education services to children of all ages and disabilities,” Coltman said. “To see the smiles on their faces and to see them in their Coltman Farms Racing hats while interacting with our team and drivers was priceless.”

Hamilton expressed his gratitude to Coltman and his drivers for all the help they have provided to the Special Needs Schools of Gwinnett over the past couple of years. He is confident the school will have everything it needs to remain steadfast in its mission for years to come.

“Brett Coltman is a true friend of [the Special Needs Schools of Gwinnett],” Hamilton said. “We are grateful for the wonderful things he is creating here, and we are proud to continue working with him and the entire Coltman Farms Racing team to impact as many deserving young people as possible.”

Coltman Farms Racing is encouraging donations to the Special Needs Schools of Gwinnett as they continue to assist children with disabilities. Those who wish to donate money can do so by visiting Coltman Farms Racing (neoncrm.com).
