ESPN reporter Marty Smith said later that Kevin Harvick and Jimmie Johnson were the first drivers to say, “let’s step up and show our support”. The people that run to the fire, rather than away, are the one’s that I respect. I’m not supposed to root in my line of work, but i’m throwing that to the curb when it comes to this story.
When NASCAR comes to Phoenix later this year, I hope to be able to speak to either driver. They were the one’s that ran to the fire to assist a co-worker in need of support…
