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.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!
Just like I do with Racing for HoPE, Liam raises funds and awareness of HPE through “Liam’s Walk for HoPE”. This has become an annual event for the Rempel family and has allowed hundreds of people in the Granbury community to learn more about HPE.
Hey, Liam! Let’s get all strapped in for tonight’s race. It’s you and me Racing for HoPE . . . checkers or wreckers!
