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, have helped to raise the competitor purse in the Limited Modified division.
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.
Robert is veteran LoneStar Speedway driver, along with his wife Trisha, continue to help raise awareness of the dangers of texting and driving at their Facebook page titled For the love of Alex Stop Texting and Driving.
