In 2006 NHRA Division 7 Super Comp class, during the first round of the national event, Greg's car incurred motor problems and was unable to continue. The call went out to the pits for help. Anthony Bertozzi, from Virginia, offered to let Greg borrow a car. Anthony had never met or heard of Greg Boutte', all he knew was that another racer needed his help.
When Greg got home with no way to contact Anthony to thank him, "I called Glenn and said 'What do you think of this idea'," says Greg. "We wanted a place that people could contact racing friends or just say thanks and congratulate fellow racers."
Racers for more than 25 years each, Greg and Glenn have a real passion for this sport. "We both love racing, so this isn't really work. We enjoy everything about it. If we can help our fellow racer, then we have accomplished what we set out to do," Greg said. Boutte' says racers can send stories that they want to share with the world, mention sponsors' products or services, or just say "good job" to a fellow racer.
