Trisha and Robert Taylor have stepped up to help raise awareness of the dangers of texting and driving, combined with a long list of sponsors they have assembled, raising the competitor purse in the Limited Modified division as well - making it one of the largest one-night, no-entry fee events for this division in the state of Texas!
On April 26, 2010 Trisha and Robert Taylor received the call that forever changed their lives, as their daughter Alex had been in an accident and was being taken by air flight to East Texas Medical Center, and would not survive her injuries. The accident was attributed to texting and driving.
