UPDATE: Our little man Karson won! Check out this touching video on SPEED, which shows Karson and his family, along with Denny Hamlin, as they talk about the car and Karson’s rare lung disorder. For more info you can go to the Praying for Karson Facebook page.
Toyota has launched a cool contest that lets fans design their own race car. It is called the Sponsafier. Ten finalists will be selected on April 1 to move onto the next round and the winning design will be used as the pace car for NASCAR’s All-Star race in Charlotte. There are many worthy entries, but we would appreciate it greatly if you would vote for the Praying for Karson car. Karson is an 11-month-old boy who was diagnosed with neuroendocrine hyperplasia of infancy (NEHI), which is an interstitial lung disease. The car was designed by Karson’s grandmother in an attempt to raise awareness of the illness. The family thinks that the car will need 12,000 votes to make the next round.

Let’s help Karson’s family out!
