Dylan Martin, an up-and-coming NASCAR driver who is making an impact in young lives needs your help.  He is headed to Lucas Oil Raceway for his 2nd ARCA race of the season on July 22nd and he needs your help with the expenses.  Your donation will go towards the expenses of tires and fuel for the race car and the travel expenses for Dylan and his team, Empire Racing Group/Grumpy’s Inc.  Dylan has been dedicated to impacting kids for the last 5+ years and at his young age of 18 he has already reached many young people thru his racing.  Dylan is an advocate for the Shriners Hospitals for Children, the Sunshine Foundation, Anchor House Ministries and TADD (Teens Against Distracted Driving).  Dylan has created a custom coloring book that he passes out to the patients at the hospitals that he uses as a tool to connect with the children and give them a small break from the daily health challenges they face.  Dylan needs your help to keep him in the driver’s seat of the race car and continue to impact youth thru his racing.  When Dylan visits schools, day cares and community events he uses his race car and helmet to talk about seat belt safety, helmet safety and it gives him an opportunity to talk about the importance of an education.   Dylan is eager to continue to be a role model for the youth and with your donation you can help make a difference along with Dylan. Giving is quick, easy and secure with the link above. Please consider giving to this fund and helping Dylan continue with his path of racing so he can continue impacting young lives. Any donation amount would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for all your support through the years.  This journey for Dylan wouldn’t be possible without each of you believing in him.

Established in 2009, Empire Racing Group is a driver-development team that strives to identify young racing talent and assist them in the advancement of their careers. While ERG originally focused on the ARCA Racing Series with drivers Sean Corr (team owner) and Mason Mitchell, the team has since expanded its reach into other series thanks in part to its alliance with Grumpy’s Performance, Inc. Under the expertise of crew chief Mike ‘Grumpy’ Cheek, ERG now competes in various Late Model series and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS). In 2016, Empire Racing Group will be serving as a developmental team for Richard Petty Motorsports, providing young drivers with driver coaching, technical support, as well as public relations and marketing needs. Additionally, ERG will compete in multiple racing series including the ARCA Racing Series, NCWTS, and NASCAR Late Model Series at Caraway Speedway. Drivers for the 2016 season include notable rising stars Thad Moffitt, Austin Hill and Dylan Martin, as well as racing veteran Sean Corr.
