Event Description


The Lutzie 43 Road Race is in its 7th year and was started as the initial fundraiser for the Lutzie 43 Foundation. The Lutzie 43 Foundation was established in loving memory of Philip Lutzenkirchen, shortly after his death in 2014. The objective of the foundation is to inspire people to make better decisions as drivers and friends, using Philip’s life and legacy to inspire change. The foundation’s motto for drivers is to “Live like Lutz, Love like Lutz, and Learn from Lutz,” reflecting our desire to help others live out the many positive character attributes that Philip displayed while learning from the circumstances that led to his death.

The Lutzie 43 Foundation exists to reduce the number of distracted driving incidents, ultimately diminishing the number of deaths caused by unsafe driving. The foundation fulfills this mission by encouraging and empowering all drivers to be positive ambassadors for safe driving, carried out through our 43 Key Seconds initiative.
