Smoke-Free Ted's Racing will take a break from visiting schools to appear at Mass General Hospital in Boston on March 22nd. The world famous facility has a yearly Pediatric Health Fair. Ted and the race team appeared last year, and feel quite honored to be back. As always Ted and the team will have a race car, giveaways, contests and the Smoke-Free #83 Racing Simulator with him. Last year Ted's Grand National car appeared, but this year fans will get a peak at his new Supermodified. Kids will pledge to be smoke-free, then sit in the #83 Supermodified. After trying a real race car on for size, they all get a shot at competing in the simulator. The simulator is a replica of the Smoke-Free 83 Grand National North Monte Carlo. Smoke-Free Ted's Grand National North and Supermodified driver recalls one child as an example of how important these appearances can be. "Last year one of the kids came down from the cardiac unit." said Marshall . "He had 1/4 of his heart replaced days earlier. After hearing we were coming he persuaded the nurses to sneak him down to the display. When you looked at the simulator, you saw all the tubes and hoses to his IV lines running under the body. The engine sounds were coming out from the car. He was driving and set fast time of the day. It was awesome!" Smoke-Free Ted's is truly honored to appear at the best hospital in the world. Miracles happen here daily. Smoke -Free Ted's sole purpose is to provide positive benefits to children that remain smoke-free. Smoke-Free Ted's uses auto racing as a form of "infotainment". "Its nice to see the popularity of NASCAR, ISMA and auto racing in general utilized in this effort, for there is one thing we all agree....kids should be smoke-free!" added Marshall.
