Honorary Pit Crew Member

Cindy Zimmerman

Jeff Simmons Practicing Team Ethanol had an honorary pit crew member this weekend in Kansas City. It was a dream come true for 21-year-old Casey Brickey, who suffers from a progressive form of muscular dystrophy. Last year Brickey teamed up with the ethanol industry to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association to fuel the fight for a cure. The ethanol industry donated $20,000 and helped raise additional funds through matching dollars and donations. For his efforts, the Ethanol Promotion and Information Council sent Brickey and his family on the all-inclusive trip to the Kansas Speedway for a day in the pits with Team Ethanol.

Casey and Jeff Simmons took time out Saturday to pose for a pit pic.
