Jeremy is a native of West Virginia and enlisted in the Army at the age of 17. Jeremy spent 12 years in a Special Missions Unit deploying globally until he was medically retired due to injuries he had sustained in combat. Once retired, Jeremy felt like he’d lost the focus and camaraderie he had while in the military. After participating in a national racing series he rediscovered those missing pieces. Upon completing his first season Jeremy decided to shift his focus to provide other veterans the same opportunity to join the racing community that he was afforded. Sine Pari Motorsports was born.
BRANDON ROBB, SSG (R)
Brandon was born in Akron, Ohio within a close-knit family. Brandon’s father was a deputy sheriff for his local county, providing him guidance on the importance of service and commitment. Brandon chose to enlist in the Ohio Army National Guard at the age of 17. Brandon has had multiple combat deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, serving as both an operations NCO and a flight engineer on CH-47 Chinooks. Due to injuries sustained on deployment Brandon was medically retired in 2018. Returning to the civilian lifestyle Brandon felt a deep loss, stripped of a sense of purpose and passion. Turning to the off-road community Brandon found both exhilaration and the determination to better himself. His goal is to help others achieve the same.
