Richardson learned about Bryson and his fight with childhood cancer recently, and offered his car as a rolling billboard to promote Bryson's FUEL, supporting children like Bryson who are combatting childhood cancer. The car’s orange paint scheme will be adorned with handprints of children fighting the disease, with memorial handprints honoring those who have lost their battle.
"The greatest part of the car that Robert Richardson and R3 Motorsports are running for FUEL is that it's not just a car for them,” said Bryson’s mother, Heather Smith. “These guys are excited for our kids and about what this car stands for.
"All of this was Robert's idea. He offered to do this for us months ago and we got to pick the Charlotte race, since it is our home track. This car shows our kids that we are making people aware of what they are going through, each and every day. Robert and his family and crew are wonderful people that feel like family to us!"
"I have always wanted to make my car more personable,” said Richardson. “After doing previous work for children with cancer, doing this for FUEL means a lot. Our guys are pumped and really looking forward to this race.”
