Update on Aaron Percell #48:  Aaron took a hard end over end flip at US24 on 5/21/16.  He was able to get out of the car and walk away.  Reports from his family are that he is ok, but had a stiff neck.  TQ not feeling so well.  Hopefully Aaron and the #48 will be race r eady soon!

Nick Speidel #35 + Dustin Wheeldon = untouchable in tribute to

 # 24 Chris Mann!  

Dustin Wheeldon and Chris Mann 

Nick Speidel and Dustin Wheeldon joined forces and gave all they had to accomplish their mission at US 24. They pulled into the pits at US 24 just as the TQ's were lining up to hot lap, typical last minute grand entrance for veteran driver Speidel. Calm and cool he dashed with helmet in hand to the track as his crew pushed his 35 - 24 TQ to the track for hot laps. I caught up with them after they completed hot laps, both had a more than normal serious look on their faces. They explained to me about how Chris Mann and Dustin Wheeldon had been life long friends and more like brothers. And that they were there for one reason and one reason only and that was to make a winning sweep in tribute, dedication and love for their dear friend Chris Mann #24 TQ driver whom had lost his battle with cancer this past week. If you look carefully you will see the number 24 in-layed into Nick's #35. Heart and Soul and fierce driving they accomplished their goal. 

God has decided He needed Chris more than we did. We all know he is up there watching over all of us & getting ready for his next race! 
Because of all the medical expenses they have had, they do not have any means of paying for the funeral. Any amount will help!!! In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation. Thank you so very much!! God Bless!



October 2013 Chris was diagnosed with Stage 4 non small cell carcinoma  in his right lung, left adrenal gland & pelvic. He wasn't given very good odds to live but he has fought this disease like a champ. After 7 months of chemotherapy he changed doctors & found out his cancer was cause from a rear gene mutation ROS1 & was able to go on a pill form of chemotherapy, he has had very good results from that. The lung cancer in his right side was undetectable, the adrenal cancer had gotten radiation & was showing no activity but recently his scan shows new activity. He had a scan around April showing the cancer in his pelvic was spreading & was beginning to eat away his hip joint & had caused a fracture in his hip, they did a needle guided procedure to push Argon around the tumor & then filled the fracture with cement.  Around the beginning of January he found out that didn't work & he in fact had another pelvic fracture from the cancer, so on January 20th he had a total left hip replacement. The procedure went well & he was doing good with physical therapy until suddenly he began to feel severe pain in his groin, leg & muscles. After several new Doctor visits they did new CT scans on February 23rd, that revealed his cancer had started to spread! It has spread to his left lung & his iliac bone on the rear of his pelvic & he had a large blood clot in the main vessel of his leg/groin & one in his lung. He was admitted into the hospital to clear up the blood clots & start therapy on his new cancer growth. Although he has fought through so much, he still has a long road ahead of him.
Please, if at all possible, try to ease some of his worries. Even the smallest donations would help with his medical & home bills. 
He isn't aware that I am making this gofundme page for him but I just feel it could be really helpful to him and the family!
If you cannot donate, just please pray!!! 

Thank you in advance!

Nick Speidel & Kimmie Williams feature win US24

Look for Joey Paxon in the front of the pack this race season in the #69.  Joey's first race this season was at US24 where he won his heat and knocked on Speidel's back door during the feature every chance he got.  Joey will be running the pavement and dirt tracks this season!

Billy requested his girl friend Nichol kiss his helmet for luck!  Must have worked because he was one of the 11 that finished the feature out of 20!
