Charlie’s story has touched many hearts within the TDFW league leading to incredible participation in the fundraiser. iRacing, will be at the virtual Talladega Racetrack with 43 drivers from around the world, racing to raise funds for Charlie’s Playground. Virtual trucks with custom paint jobs will honor Charlie and support playground construction. Charlie’s parents will be the Grand Marshals of the race and will be giving the command for the drivers to start their engines. The race will go live March 3 at 9:20 p.m.
