On July 3, 2016 I was severely burned after an accident racing sprint cars at Selinsgrove (PA) Speedway. I had 2nd and 3rd degree burns over 35% of my body (arms, stomach, legs) even after wearing all approved safety equipment. I spent 29 days in the burn center at Lehigh Valley. As I’ve recovered the outpouring of support from the racing community has been more than overwhelming. The Steve King Foundation was one of the first organizations to step up once they heard about me. Knowing what I had ahead of me, they got in touch with my family and did what they could to make sure our needs were taken care of. It’s so amazing that they are out there to help people like myself.
