!!! DOMINATION !!! JT dominated the track on November 14, 2009! 1st on the pole (fastest qualifying time), 1st in the heat and a BIG 1st in the feature! It was the last race of the season and JT was on a mission to prove he has what it takes, and Lynn Hardy Jr made him earn it all the way. Those two have gone nose to nose all season!
The car looked great and so did every lap of the race. After the race JT and Lynn put on quite a show with an awesome burn out and the fans loved it! Great sportsmanship between those two. He pulled into the winner circle and as he climbed out of his car you could see the smile on his face from the top of the stands as he was presented with his 1st place trophy. He had no intention of adding this one to his collection. Before the race JT told his mom if he won he was giving his award to a three year old little boy with cancer. And that is just what he did! As his mom I am so proud of him, I know his passion for racing is deep. He is a good kid, and amazingly caring.
I know how much his awards mean to him and being his first year to race you would think he would keep everyone. Nope! He made my heart fill with joy when he told me what he planned to do. I am truly blessed to have such a talented and giving child. Unfortunately the little boy Grant was to sick to attend the race so JT gave the trophy to Mothers Against Cancer to deliver it to Grant. What a wonderful group of people they are and their Organization is helping so many families.
CONGRATULATIONS!!!! to JT for his BIG WIN! Can't wait to see what next season brings!
