Remember to cheer on NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin in the FedEx #11 car dedicated to March of Dimes in support of our 2011 March for Babies!  Denny will race this special car tonight at the Texas Motor Speedway.  Look for the purple and black scheme designed by eight-year-old twin brothers, Josh and Jake Aron of Dallas, TX!



Jake and Josh, serving as special ambassadors for March of Dimes Texas chapter, will enjoy special VIP access to the race along with their Dad Jaime, Mom Lori, and big brother Zack. The Arons have been an active family team since shortly after the twins were born at 23 weeks weighing less than one pound each.  The Aron family is thrilled to be part of this once in a lifetime opportunity!

In addition to the super slick black and purple scheme, FedEx had both Josh and Jake’s actual footprints at birth enlarged and placed on the back to help push the #11 car to victory. Denny and his team say the car shows up great on the track!



Many thanks to March for Babies national sponsor FedEx, Denny Hamlin and Joe Gibbs Racing for the creating this once in a lifetime experience for two March of Dimes mission ambassadors.  Let’s hope it brings good luck tonight!   The race begins tonight at 7 p.m. ET.  Look for coverage on FOX Sports.
