Winning at the Race of Life

Sammy Signing autographs


Janeen meets Richard Andrew

The Sammy Maloof Racing Team traveled the short forty miles to Pacific Palisades Presbyterian Church for NASCAR NIGHT last Thursday. March 22nd featuring some of your favorite Sprint Cup & Nationwide Drivers Blake Koch, Michael McDowell, Stunt car driver Sammy Maloof, and an intimate time of worship with Richard Andrew; lives touched by the love of Jesus! Who is getting ready to give a few rides in our 640 horse powered stunt car!

We were treated to some awesome testimonies from all four men before leaving the church for Sammy's demonstration of his driving skills, with only a few feet of clearance he whipped his car in circles while the tires screamed out, I was even taken back as I thought he might bump the parked cars! A few lucky one's rode along as Sammy went around the barrels we staged at opposite ends of the parking lot.

As the crowd swarmed around Sammy he signed many autographs before leading the group in a prayer, which almost made him miss his flight back to Florida that night from LAX.
