September 13, 2020: We had a great car for the race at Carteret County Speedway. Unfortunately, we were taken out and wrecked on lap 61 while running in 2nd place. We had a great few days on the Crystal Coast with the fastest car in most of the practices and a strong 3rd place qualifying effort. We settled in and ran 2nd for most of the first 60 laps. There's a lot that could (and probably should) be said about what happened on lap 61, but the only thing we can control is our ability to move forward and Fight On. Thank you to my brothers in arms for all of your hard work: Brandon Butler, Dan Givens, Grayson Cullather, Larry Lindsay, Colin Butler, and Larry Graff.

Living Life In The Moment
I thought a lot about the most memorable events of September 12 at Carteret County Speedway. My mind kept replaying the vision of Craig Lendino's ear to ear smile when asked if he had a good time at the end of the night. Some people tend to focus on what Craig can't do because of Down syndrome. When we see Craig, we focus on what he can do -- and what he wants to do.

RACING FOR A REASON
Friends of Jaclyn Foundation
Timmy Tyrrell Racing and driver Mini Tyrrell joined forces with the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation in 2019. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for children battling pediatric brain tumors and other childhood cancers. The program starts by adopting a child and making them an honorary pit crew member. But it's not just for one race. It's for as long as the child and family are in need of support.
