|I wanted to
personally thank the Shane Hammond Believe Foundation and Deb
Marvuglio for their support of driver safety. In May of 2010 the
throttle stuck in my 410 non wing dirt sprintcar coming off the
track at Waynesfield, Ohio. I did not stop until I hit a trailer
in the pit area, the hit knocked me unconscious, and landed me
in the hospital for two days.
Thanks to the full containment seat that I purchased over the
winter with help from the Shane Hammond Believe Foundation I was
not seriously injured. The foundation helped me get better
safety equipment than I could have afforded, and I am thankful
for it everyday when I realize that the seat keeping me in the
car impacted the outcome of the accident.
I am so grateful for the help for the SHBF. I believe what the
SHBF is doing for motorsports will help all involved in making
us more aware of safety and help us protect ourselves as much as
Thank you again to the

|Let me start by saying working with
Deb Marvuglio and the Shane Hammond Believe Foundation has been
a pleasure. My personnal experience with the foundation was
about me purchasing a Hans Device to replace my other device
which I thought was OK. I spoke with Deb and purchased a Hans
through the Shane Hammond Believe Foundation.
On a Sat. night in August 2010 I put my Hans on went out to run
the Lites feature at Seekonk and ended up in the wall pretty
hard and wrecked the car. Broke my heart but was very much
The next day I was a little bit sore...very little. I keep
wondering what if that was the other device. So again I would
like to say thanks to Deb and the foundation for all her hard
work and keeping us safe.

|I attended The Racer's Expo in 2009,
and because of your story my fiancée and I bought the hybrid on
Good thing I did. I was in a very serious crash and probably
would of been hurt really bad. I was able to climb out of the
Sprint under my own power because the hybrid did exactly what it
was suppose to do.
Its a shame that it takes a loss so close to get the point of safety
So in closing we want to thank you for sharing your story.
