Special Guest Speaker


Deaf Race Car Driver and Motivational Speaker


Kris Martin

Kris Martin is a winning NASCAR racing driver and boundary-breaker – who happens to be deaf. His mantra? “Not A Problem”. As much as Kris loves race car driving, his real passion is to speaking to schools and groups all over the globe – inspiring and motivating his young audiences by telling his story.

“I want to take all my experience and help kids that are in a similar situation as me and teach them.

I travel all over the world to speak with kids to tell them they can do anything they want to do no matter the obstacle. I want to motivate young people to follow their dreams, even if it is outside of racing.

Racing gave me the confidence to excel in all things in life. My goal is to show others that they can have the same opportunity.”

— Kris Martin
