Stewart-Marchman-Act Behavioral Healthcare receives donation from 13-year-old race car driver
Race car driver Harrison Burton — just 13 years old — donated $1,000 of his winnings from the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at New Smyrna Speedway last month to Stewart-Marchman-Act Behavioral Healthcare, according to a Stewart-Marchman-Act Behavioral Healthcare press release.
Harrison is sponsored by DEX Imaging, which donates thirty percent of its profits to charity, and Harrison decided to follow their example, according to the release.
When he asked DEX Imaging’s account representative Cary Frisenda who he should donate the money to, Cary immediately said Stewart-Marchman-Act.
“DEX Imaging is proud to align ourselves with such a great organization like SMA that helps so many people,” Frisenda said in the press release. “We are so pleased that Harrison has chosen to ‘pay it forward’ and donate thirty percent of his winnings from New Smyrna to one of our local charities,” he added.
Competing in the NASCAR Whelen All American Series Pro Late Model division, Harrison won two of seven races – including the100-lap event – in the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at New Smyrna Speedway, and finished second in the division’s overall standings, according to the press release.
