Racing with Faith in Richmond

From L to R: Andy, Jeff, Robert, and Major Wayne give big smiles outside The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club in Richmond, VA before they head to NASCAR.

Two more Salvation Army youth enjoyed an unforgettable opportunity thanks to the generosity of NASCAR driver Morgan Shepherd and his Victory in Jesus Racing Team!

Morgan invited the two Boys and Girls Club members, 11 year-old Andy and 14 year-old Robert of Richmond, VA, to the NASCAR Nationwide Series BUBBA Burger 250 at Richmond International Raceway. Accompanied by The Salvation Army’s Major Wayne McHargue and Jeff Baldwin, they received Pit Passes to experience NASCAR the way few people have the chance.

Thanks to their Pit Passes, the guys watched the race from inside the track. What a view!

There it is - Morgan Shepherd's #89 Victory in Jesus Race Car...

The guys had access to behind-the-scenes action, watching as crews prepped the cars and officials conducted pre-race inspections. They saw NASCAR Hall of Famer Richard Petty, and they even met Morgan Shepherd and hung out in his trailer. Afterward, the group watched qualifying runs and the race in the pit area inside the track!

...and here's the driver himself, Morgan Shepherd, with Andy and Robert!

Robert (shown) and Andy were amazed at how LOUD the cars were and how fast they sped around the track. A NASCAR official gave them ear plugs to help drown out the roar of the race.

Andy, Robert and The Salvation Army are extremely grateful for this rare and exciting opportunity! We also want to say thank you to Morgan Shepherd and the Race with Faith team for generously donating the hood of their Nationwide Series race car to The Salvation Army.
