August 22, 2015 – Racing for HoPE

It was so nice to be back in the race car again, and we were able to bring home a 2nd place finish last weekend!

This weekend, we are back at Baer Field Speedway once again for a 30-lap Late Model feature, and it should be a night of good racing as the ARCA/CRA Super Series will be taking the 1/2 mile track for a 100-lap feature.  There won’t be any heat races tonight, but there will be an autograph session which is always a great way to interact with fans, hand out a few Racing for HoPE t-shirts and bring more awareness to Holoprosencephaly.

Riding along in the #09 tonight will be a cute little guy named Liam Rempel.  Liam is 2-1/2 years old and lives in Granbury, Texas with his parents, Joey and Kristy Rempel.

Liam and Liam’s Ladies

You know for those of us who are able-bodied, it’s all too easy for us to look at a child with HPE and see his/her disability first or assume the child is weak or feeble.  I’ve met Liam, and trust me, there is nothing weak about him with his little dare-devil attitude.  And, single men take note because Liam most definitely has a way with the ladies!

Hey, Liam!  Let’s get all strapped in for tonight’s race.  It’s you and me Racing for HoPE . . . checkers or wreckers!
