9-year-old with Lymphoma Designs Color Scheme for NASCAR Driver

9-year-old with Lymphoma Designs Color Scheme for NASCAR Driver

Nine-year-old Wyatt Zender, of Washington State, had a special section in the stands reserved just for him and his family for the 2017 NASCAR Chip Series race at Chicagoland Speedway on September 17th.

It seems Wyatt had an investment, of sorts, in the event.

As it turned out, Wyatt had submitted a racecar paint design to the contest, sponsored by the Seattle Children’s Hospital, and he had won! His design was painted onto Kasey Kahne’s No. 5 Farmers Insurance Chevrolet SS.

Kasey, also a Washington State native, participated with Seattle Children’s for the contest. He saw to it that prior to the race, Wyatt could actually sit inside No. 5.
