Trisha and Robert Taylor have stepped up to help raise awareness of the dangers of texting and driving, and to help increase the competitor purse in the LSS points divisions for this special night of racing. LoneStar Speedway has matched those increases, creating a doubling effect.
On April 26, 2010 Trisha and Robert Taylor received the call that forever changed their lives, as their daughter Alex had been in an accident and was being taken by air flight to East Texas Medical Center and would not survive her injuries. The accident was attributed to texting and driving.
Robert is veteran LoneStar Speedway driver, along with his wife Trisha, continue to help raise awareness of the dangers of texting and driving, at their Facebook page titled For the Love of Alex Stop Texting and Driving.

Each division winner will also receive and oversized check from the Taylor's, and a 12" commemorative plaque from LSS.
