Fairlanes4ever First On Race Day
Default New Perspective

One of the many benefits of being a Mac Tools distributor is that every year I get to work at the U.S. Nationals. Always a great time and get to meet lots of great people. Last Friday as we were putting the final touches on our display a man in a wheel chair approached who I immediately regcognized. It was the great Darrell Gwynn. He came up and asked if he could borrow some tools to fix his chair. My only respose was "Anything you need, Darrell." So, 10 minutes and an allen wrench and he was on his way. I may sound kinda silly but I felt really honored to be able to help someone who not only survived such a horrible racing accident, but who went on to excell as a top fuel team owner and now with his Darrell Gwynn Foundation raising money to buy wheel chairs for childeren. When a man with one arm in a wheel chair smiles and cracks jokes it makes your "problems" seem pretty small. Thanks, Darrell

It's funny how sometimes opportunities like that are maybe more for you then it is for them. You think your helping him but he is really helping you.
