Even though #19 Daniel Suarez and the Joe Gibbs Racing Crew didn't win the checkered flag at the Kansas Speedway on Saturday, May 13th, our four honorary CMN pit crew kids had an experience of a lifetime. They had the opportunity to be recognized during the very exclusive pre-race driver/crew chief meeting, ride in the back of pick-up trucks with members of the NASCAR Job Gibbs Racing team during the pre-race parade and watch the race under the lights in a suite. If you are a NASCAR fan, be sure to keep your eye on #19 Daniel Suarez, he's definitely one to watch!
A huge thank you to Stanley Black & Decker, Joe Gibbs Racing, #19 Daniel Suarez, his pit crew, supporting donors and especially Ace Hardware on a fantastic race.
Note: KU Medical Center Pediatrics was chosen as the honorary partner hospital for Racing for Miracles 2017 and received a $25,000 on behalf of the Ace Foundation.
