In Race City USA, otherwise known as Mooresville, NC, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Clint Bowyer, Joey Logano and Danica Patrick were among the drivers who swapped their firesuits for cocktail attire and waltzed down the runway, each holding the hand of one of the nine children battling cancer. The Martin Truex Jr Foundation has put on this “Catwalk” event for seven years. It is spearheaded by Sherry Pollex, recent cancer survivor and longtime girlfriend of Truex Jr. The 2016 event raised almost $400,000.00 for pediatric cancer research.
I worked with Stacee Michelle, a Charlotte-based E! on-air host and personality. She deftly handled the backstage interviews with the drivers.
