How old do you have to be… "To be a dirt track fan"
 By Lonnie Hastings

I want to tell you about a little boy name Carson who is already a true dirt track fan at the age of one. His Papaw was a dirt track race car driver until he was diagnosed with Leukemia and got too sick to drive. Carson loves the sound of horsepower and gets overwhelmed with excitement! To see him at the race track made it obvious to his family that Carson is hooked.

Carson has had many challenges during his first year of life. Carson was born July 3, 2011 and was 14 weeks premature. He weighed just 2 pounds and was 13 3/4" in length. After his birth he stayed in the Neonatal ICU for almost five months. He has battled hemorrhaging in his brain, breathing difficulty, heart problems, and hernia repair surgery. He has developmental delays and is at risk for Cerebral Palsy. Carson had surgery July 10, 2012 for Urinary reflux. I was told it went well but he will have more tests done in 4 weeks to see if the procedure worked.

Carson has been a fighter through all his challenges. He is learning to sit up on his own and does an army crawl to get wherever he needs to go. He has been blessed with a great medical staff at Trinity Mother Frances Hospital as well as support from his family, friends and many others who have been touched by Carson's story.

As you have read Carson's first birth day was on July 3, 2012 . We at LuvRacin.com heard about Carson's story from Freddie Hasting and wanted to make Carson's birthday a Happier Birthday. We wanted to give him something he could enjoy and also use for all his appts.

We got busy and made a few phone calls. The first call I made to was to Tommy Mckinley. I ask Tommy if he could help me build a Race Car Wagon for Carson. After a few phone calls we were able to get this Race car wagon built with the help of Tommy Mckinley, Mckinley Farm, Smiley's Racing Chassis, Tom Lorenz, Smiley's Racing Products, James and Becky Bryant and Superbowl Speedway Staff, Ross Racing, and Jay Hallas.

I want to thank everyone involved. On behalf of Carson and his family, we would like to Thank LuvRacin.com, Luvracinlonnie.com, Tommy Mckinley, Mckinley Farm, Smiley's Racing Chassis, Tom Lorenz Smiley's Racing Products, James and Becky Bryant and Superbowl Speedway Staff, Ross Racing, and Jay Hallas for all the Support to build Carson’s Race Car Wagon. Carson's family feels truly touched and blessed to be part of the Racing Family.
