Peyton's Angels Indiana Chapter of The Cure Starts Now is a group dedicated and inspired by Peyton Whittington who was diagnosed with DIPG on June 17, 2012. Sadly he passed away in June 2013

Thank You for Visiting!

Peyton's Story:

On June 17 2012, Lynn and her husband John’s life was forever changed. She took her 4 year old son, who happens to be a twin, to the doctor after some dizzy spells. They decided to proceed with an MRI. This is what happened next.

When we got there they took MRI pictures and that is where the real drama happened. While he was in the MRI machine he was so quiet and so still that the doctor was alarmed. For a child to be able to sleep through the racket of an MRI was too rare. As soon as she saw the first sets of pictures and saw how quiet he was she stopped everything and barged through the doors, ripped all the equipment off of him and began picking him up and shaking him. Even that barely got him awake. This is when she gave us the devastating news about our son.

She told us that he has a brain tumor in his brain stem and it cannot be taken out. She told us that if we do not go in RIGHT NOW and relieve pressure then he will slip into a coma and die tonight. You can imagine the screams and cries coming from John and myself. In fact there was not a dry eye in the room. The other doctors and nurses and staff were right there crying with us.

I had to make the hardest decision of my life. Crawling in my child’s hospital bed and holding him, for what was possibly the very last time and watching them take him away was the absolute scariest, most heart wrenching and sickening moment of my entire life! I told him that he was not allowed to leave me.That I had big big plans for him. We prayed over him and let him go..."

Peyton survived his surgeries. He went on to have an incredible last year with his family and his friends. In the end he passed away peacefully in the arms of his adoring mother. Peyton Whittington was a five year old little boy who in only a matter of months touched more lives than we can count. It is because of him that his mother and father are dedicating their lives to finding a cure for DIPG. Thank you for your support and helping us be a voice for other children just like Peyton

The Keith Kunz was waiting on Jason after each race at the Bartholomew County Fair Tony Stewart Foundation TQ Race, he is a Jason fan too!  Listen to his interview and you will agree!

Home Town Win!  

Meet Ashley Albertson!  New to TQ's but not to racing.  She drives a Kenyon Midget!   Chris Baue announced he would not be driving the #70 Souvinor TQ for the remaining of the race season. This announcement came after two semi feature wins, Rush and Shelby County.  And, then a flip at the Greensburg Track.  He is going to concentrate on the family full Midget.   The #70 made it to the Kokomo Speedway just two days after the flip, and it sat in the pits without a driver.  Later that evening it was announced that Ashley would be jumping in the #70 for her 1st TQ race at the Tony Stewart Foundation race in Columbus, IN

Tony Stewart is a great racer, and that is what most people know him the best for.  But, he is a whole lot more than that.  He too like Jason Setser,  is an ambassador of goodwill.   Tony and his mom hear stories like Peyton's every single day. The Tony Stewart Foundation reaches out to help as many as they can.  The Tony Stewart Foundations was a part of the TQ races July 11th at the Bartholomew County Fair.  Tony was there signing  autographs and very kindly allowing photos with all of his fans.  And to watch some white knuckle dirt track racing.  I don't know exactly how much money we raised for the foundation and I know every little bit helps.  But, just think of all the people's lives that Tony touched that night.  It was such a hot muggy day, and I spotted Tony going out of his way to make sure people in the wheel chairs that couldn't get to him got an autograph and picture too.  He kept smiling and signing long after the autograph session was over, all the way up until after the race he was still smiling and having fun with is friends and fans.   He has one special fan in Greensburg Indiana that was not able to make the race that night.  She knew Tony way back in the day when he drove TQ's and drove for her son Larry Dwenger which has since passed on.  With some help from Rick Bailey another Dwenger driver,  Tony and all of the Drviers signed a special get well card for Joan.  Sure made her day when I delivered it to her today.  Listen to Tony's interview below, to hear his comments on his TQ driver Callie Wolsiffer and his comments about the Dwenger family.

Tony Stewart has a big heart too, he is a whole lot more than a Great Racer!

Race Fans I can't begin to tell you what a super nice person Jason Setser 12s is.  His driving ability speaks for itself through the incredible stats he has chaulked up in his life time motorsports driving career.  You have got to make it a point to go to his race pits after a race and say, "Hi' to this amazing driver. Listen to his interview and you will get an inside look into this man's heart.  He is racing for a cure, and all of his winnings with the 12s are given to the Peyton's Angels The Cure Starts Now Foundation.  He won is 1st feature of the UMRA King of the TQ Midgets 2016 season at the opening season race at Brownstown Speedway in March.  He has had fast times heat wins and Trophy dash wins this season. He got his second feature win at the Super Kokomo Speedway 7.9.16.  And his third at his home track, Bartholomew County Fair Tony Stewart Foundation Race 7.11.16.

Elijah has been a real hard charger in the last few races that he has participated in.  He  has been giving some of the veteran drivers a run for their money.  We feel like he should have a picture with our Miss Let's Go Racin', Miranda Ryle, just like the race winners have.  Great job Elijah people are taking notice of  your driving ability!

Tony Stewart will be signing autographs!
