Lebanon, Tennessee (WTVF) — Thanks to Make-A-Wish and NASCAR, two young Central Tennessee boys with cancer have become race car drivers for the day.
Brayson of Gallatin and Tylie of Portland are four-year-olds fighting various forms of cancer. Their wish began Wednesday at the Rackley WAR Racing Development shop, with a full tour of NASCAR driver Josh Berry and Rackley’s late model driver Kyle Neveau.
“We are honored to help these children fulfill their wishes,” said Curtis Sutton, CEO of Rackley Roofing & Rackley WAR. I’m excited to spend time with Braseon and Tyree. “
When the boys saw the trucks and cars of Luckly Racing, they received custom driving suits and other surprise gifts, respectively.
On Wednesday afternoon, Blason and Tylie headed to the Nashville Superspeedway, where they boarded an official pace car driven by truck president Eric Moses. The boys and their families were also presented with tickets for the Tennessee Lottery 250 NASCAR Xfinity series race on Saturday.
Eric Moses, president of Nashville Superspeedway, said: “The great work that Make a Wish Middle Tennessee does to create hope by providing a memorable experience is important to both children and families. Braeson and Tyree on track over the NASCAR Triple Header weekend. I’m looking forward to hosting. “
Nashville Superspeedway will host the first ever NASCAR Cup Series this weekend.
