Nothing could be finer than sitting in my recliner, with my root beer, popcorn, & hot dogs, on a Sunday afternoon, listerning to the Anderson 125 & the truck race, on Speed,51.com & speed Tv. in Conyers, Ga.! === Ga. boys stay up on that wheel, one lap at a time, & bring home the trophy & checkered flag!! === Everyone have a safe race! === Thanks to everyone! === A Senior Fan!!

Teressa Harp is here in support of Kenzie Ruston. (Speed51.com Photo)

 

 

2:37

Teressa Harp is a twelve year-old little girl from Oklahoma that is fighting her second round of Rhabdomyosarcoma, which is a cancerous tumor of the muscles that are attached to the bones. Teressa was first diagnosed in September of 2010 and after a year of grueling chemo, and brain surgery, the cancer has returned and the survival rate is now next to zero.

This courageous little girl lives with her grandparents and two siblings after the unexpected death of her mother several years ago. Life hasn’t been exactly easy for Teressa and one of the things that puts a smile on her face is keeping up with Kenzie and her racing efforts.

Over the past several years Teressa has become a huge Kenzie Ruston fan and it was brought to Kenzie’s attention by the great people with Cruise 4 Cancer Foundation. Cruise 4 Cancer has also been helping to assist Teressa’s grandmother with medical bills and other day to day expenses that the family cannot afford due to the circumstances they are presented with.

To honor Teressa’s life and fight with cancer the Kenzie Ruston Racing team has partnered up with Cruise 4 Cancer Foundation to help bring this little girl some joy. Kenzie is running a special decal on her No.39 MelMark Pipe & Supply racecar today.
