NASCAR Comes to the Perry Point VA Medical Center
On their way to the Daytona International Speedway for “Speed Weeks 2013,” the Empire Racing’s Restore-Recover-Renew Tour made a stop at the Perry Point VA Medical Center to display their team’s one-of-a-kind, handicap accessible, NASCAR ride-along truck.
In cooperation with the nonprofit organization, Warriors in the Workplace, and in keeping with their team ideals, Empire Racing has embarked on a tour of VA medical facilities and military installations along the East Coast leading up to the Daytona 500. “This is a great way to visit the brave men and women of the U.S. military who are serving and who have served, to thank them for their service to our country,” said Sean Corr, Empire Racing driver.
“Being a NASCAR enthusiast, I was thrilled to meet Sean Corr, chat about race car driving, and have the opportunity to actually sit in the NASCAR ride-along vehicle. I became interested in NASCAR at a very early age and by the time I turned 16 years old, I owned a 1957 Ford Fairlane, which I raced at Dorsey Speedway,” said Raymond Hennighausen, a Veteran at the Perry Point VA Medical Center.
