RIP Sharon Hutchens

We are saddened to hear that Sharon Hutchens, wife of Stewart Haas Racing Competition Director Bobby Hutchens, lost her battle against Breast Cancer Tuesday, December 22 at the age of 45. Sharon was one of the founders of "The Pit Lizards" a group dedicated to raise money for the fight against Breast Cancer. She was passionate in supporting the local Triad Chapter of the Susan G. Komen "Race for the Cure" for fighting Breast Cancer. This past May, Sharon was the recipient of the first annual "Survivor of the Year" award presented to her by Hota Kotb after the 2009 Triad Race for the Cure. Donations are being made in Hutchens name to Susan G. Komen, c/o The Pit Lizards, 1106 Burke Street, Winston-Salem, NC 27101

We are very passionate about raising awareness and money for the fight against Breast Cancer. There are various different ways to get involved in your community. You can volunteer for a local chapter of Susan G. Komen or Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. If you aren't already involved, we urge you to make it your New Years resolution. Every year, we participate in the Volusia/Flagler County Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5k and other local Breast Cancer events. We also promote every NASCAR Breast Cancer related event we are contacted about. Every person makes a difference against this awful fight.

RIP Sharon, our thoughts and prayers go out to your family and friends.
