Scott Heckert Racing
Scott Heckert developed a deep passion at the young age of 8-years-old when he began racing go-karts at the Norwalk Karting Association where he secured many wins and two championships. This was just the beginning of great things to come for Heckert.

We provide police, fire/rescue and other first responders with a comprehensive program including equipment and training to quickly locate and rescue “at risk” individuals with cognitive disorders who are at constant risk to the life threatening behavior of wandering including those with Alzheimer’s disease, Autism, and Down syndrome.
Heckert’s Aunt, who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease, is enrolled in the Project Lifesaver program. Throughout the course of this racing season his #72 Chevy is decorated with the Project Lifesaver name and logo in order to raise awareness of the Project Lifesaver program.
