Smith, who finished 15th in the first Can Am Duel on Thursday night to qualify for the DAYTONA 500, took some time out of his busy racing schedule to surprise the children at the Speediatrics® Unit with remote control cars from his sponsor Toy State. It didn’t take long until the toy cars were racing through the halls of the unit.
John, 14, was excited to meet the Tommy Baldwin Racing driver, who gave him a NIKKO Viper RC car. “I’m a speed person too,” John said to Smith with his voice full of joy.
The NASCAR Foundation’s mission is to help children who need it the most while putting smiles on their faces.
Smith asked Caitlyn, 13, how she was feeling. “I’m better now,” she said with a big smile on her face.
