I was severely injured at the Knoxville Raceway on June 30, 2012. Another car broke through the cockpit of my car and shattered my elbow, hurt my thigh and stabbed a bumper under my armpit, off my ribs, through my collar bone and out my back. I was flown by life flight to Des Moines, IA where I would spend multiple days recovering. Reconstructing my elbow and getting back to normal daily life took months and I did not race again for nearly nine months. The Steve King Foundation stepped in to help my family and I financially during this tough time. They did so without asking and with such care. It was the worst time of my life but the individuals at the Steve King Foundation were able to help us see the love and care that the racing community gives during a fellow racer’s time of need. Great organization with a great purpose led by amazing individuals. Thank you!
