Racing is like life: Enjoy the Ride
Racing is like life. You are on a journey, always mindful of your experiences along the way as you speed toward your destination. Courtesy and camaraderie are important because you want to make sure that those around you also enjoy the ride. There is competition, no doubt, but teamwork and integrity are huge qualities to keep you grounded, to keep your eyes focused on the road.
Racing Hallmarks Align with Apex Core Values
The hallmarks of racing align with the core values at Apex Capital Corp. Apex and racing are both about people and chemistry, as exemplified by Apex Capital CEO David Baker, who spent 15 years driving the Apex Porsche 911 GT3 Cup. For more than 25 years, Apex has served small to medium-sized trucking companies with friendly, client-focused freight factoring. In business, just like in racing, you must do the right thing.

Lemons of Love Chemo Care Packages
It can be difficult to know how to help family, friends and coworkers who are diagnosed with cancer and going through treatment. Sending a Lemons of Love chemo care package is a way to show support from near or far. Our packages are filled with quality products with a purpose to help ease the short-term side effects of treatment and are designed to brighten a cancer patient’s day.
Lemons of Love Cancer Resource Center
In 2018, we opened the Lemons of Love Cancer Resource Center in Mt. Prospect, IL. The goal of the Center is to provide wellness classes, educational programming, and opportunities to build community for those impacted by cancer–including survivors, caregivers and loved ones. Our programs, offered at no charge to participants, include yoga, meditation, creative arts, patient education and nutrition.
Apex Connection to Racing Runs Deep
All of us at Apex love the pavement, the wheels, and the speed of a race. We relish the thrill of auto racing that comes from hearing engines roar and watching souped-up cars skid the circular track. But the Apex connection to racing goes deeper than that. Healthy competition, nourished by courtesy and camaraderie as well as people and chemistry, help businesses succeed. Those hallmarks also feed our experiences as human beings. Racing truly is like life.
