Racing to Play
Whether they’re racing to win or Racing to Play, our pit crew is known for busting their butts. Last week, Brian and the #83 crew sweated it out for 6 hours for Tony Stewart’s “Racing to Play” charity. The crew built one heck of a playground – a $33,000 playground (no joke!) - for a local shelter for battered women and their children. Almost 200 volunteers were on-site dragging and raking mulch, building swing sets, piecing together playground parts, mixing and pouring cement, and building a rock climbing wall (the #83 guys took that project over). Get eight guys together and you’re bound to get frat party-like jokes. Overheard between the pit crew and Brian were, “Hey Brian, be careful with those piano hands,” and “I’ve gotta watch these money-makers (Aaron Schields referring to his hands).” A big thanks to Shaun Peet, Eric Groen, Mike Metcalf, Doug Newell, Dustin Necaise, Aaron Schields, Phillip Norris, and Brian Vickers. Your mom’s would be proud.
