August 13, 2016 – Racing for HoPE

Well, friends, it has been a while since I’ve updated the blog. Back in the spring, I had a racing crash that put me on the sidelines for most of the season with back issues.  During that time, I worked on my race car, helped with other race cars, and put a few other drivers behind the wheel of the #09.

In July, I spent a week in Dallas, Texas with Families for HoPE for the 2016 Family Conference on Holoprosencephaly. I have a lot to share with you about that amazing experience, but I will need to save that for another day…because is Race Day, and the doctor has given me the green light to make a run for a checkered flag.

Riding with me tonight is Kara Pettett, daughter of John and Karla Pettett from Valparaiso, Indiana. Kara turned Sweet 16 just a few weeks ago, and I figured that I should have a pretty princess in the car with me tonight to bring a sweet victory. This photo of Kara is from the HoPE Prom held during the conference last month.

Ready, Kara? I hope that tiara is certified for safety by Simpson because we are ready to race! Let’s roll!
