With all the tension and passion that runs deep here at The Bullring, when push comes to shove, the racing community is there for one another.
This past Saturday, while on their way to the track, the Franck family was involved in an accident. Traveling northbound on 99, a lady heading south, turned left directly in front of them. Mark slammed on the brakes, in hopes that they could avoid her. Apparently she was going so slow that it was inevitable
that they would collide. Several people, in our racing community, stopped to assist. Mark and Elaina were taken to the hospital. Ethan was brought to the track by Drake Standley’s dad, Tyler Matheny’s dad took Kevin with them, Russell and Nicole Moore left Mark and Elaina their vehicle to drive. Garrett Gramps drove the Moore’s to the track.
Unfortunately, the Franck vehicle is totaled, with minimal damage to the race trailer and kart.
Elaina would like to remind everyone of the importance of securely fastening your children into their car seats. She knows that her children did not sustain any injuries due to being properly belted in.
Pray for their healing. Mark and Elaina were lucky to not have sustained any broken bones, but they are bruised and sore.
Could you also continue to pray for Connie Jones, the grandma of Dustin and Savannah Heath. She has stage 2 melanoma on her foot. Surgery has been postponed twice.
I spoke to Logan Seavey, briefly, this past Saturday. He is still healing from open heart surgery. I asked him if he knew when he’d return and he currently doesn’t have a timeline. Keep him in your prayers as well. It’s a tough surgery to go through, at any age
