Our local race tracks have a friend and fan that is going to get his wish with "Make a Wish" at the "Trophy Cup" in Tulare California on October 20th-22nd! Micah is 16 years old and was born with a chromosome disorder that has left him with special needs, along with severe scoliosis. Since when Micah was just a baby his true "happy place" in life is to watch the flagman and imitate him waving his flags. It is so heartwarming to watch. He has become like family to the drivers, who look forward to seeing his smiling face, flags clenched in his hands, anticipating the next race to go out on the track. He also takes pride in collection of driver fan shirts, wearing one to every race. It would be so awesome to show just how amazing the racing world family is, by sharing this post to see how many drivers will mail in their fan shirt (he is an adult large) to add to Micha's dream night with Make a Wish to be presented with an addition to his collection of shirts. If you would like to participate and donate one of your driver fan shirts please mail it to Make- A- Wish/Kim Garcia 1073 West Cadillac Lane Hanford CA 93230. Please sign the shirt if possible. Thank you racers, I know what a wonderful group of people we are, this can turn into something extraordinary! You can also make a monetary donation at or you can call Make a Wish in Fresno @ (559)221-WISH (9474).
Let's make miracles happen!
