Aaron Grosskopf - A kid with Cerebral Palsy who dreams of checkered flags

A fundraiser has been started to help get Aaron Grosskopf a chance behind the wheel of a Legend car.

Aaron Grosskopf was born with Cerebral Palsy. Ever since he was a young boy he has dreamed of becoming a race car driver and now a group of people are trying to make that dream become a reality.

A fundraiser, started by Ryan Farbo, is hoping to raise $10,000 in order to get Aaron a uniquely built Legend car, customized to his special needs. Aaron's goal is compete in the Jack-in-the-Box Summer Shootout at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He would drive for Farbo Motorsports but he's going to need some help to make this dream come true.

They are accepting donations now as they try to make Aaron's life-long goal come to fruition and make him one of, if not the first racer with such a disability. Talking about the fundraiser, Aaron said "It's just incredible all the people that are rallying behind me. It's a dream come true just to see the support and I can't thank all those involved enough, especially Driven Race Group, Ryan Farbo and Farbo Motorsports."

Aaron is also the founder Disabled Racers, an online website dedicated to promoting and showcasing the incredible stories of other racers, who against all odds, compete with disabilities.
