Many people dream of their names being featured on one of the vehicles in the 24 Hours of Daytona, but few actually get to realize that dream, especially when it involves a Corvette C7.R. Earlier this month, one more person managed to achieve his dream – Tripp Postmus, a young cancer patient.
As part of the Make A Wish Foundation, which works to make the dreams of children with serious illnesses a reality, Tripp was able to make his dream of being part of the Corvette Racing team come true – and the team couldn’t be happier to have its newest member.
Tripp’s name was displayed on the #3 C7.R. He and his family were also brought down for a visit to the Corvette Racing garage after attending the 24 Hours of Daytona – but that’s not all.
The Corvette Racing crew chief, Dan Binks, recently announced that the team will also be putting up multiple items for auction on eBay, benefitting Tripp and his cancer care. The items will include a variety of things, including hats, fire suits, trophies, and posters. Along with this, the team also shared a link to Tripp’s GoFundMe page.
At Fairground Auto Plaza, we are proud to be part of the Chevrolet family.
