Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM) is pleased to announce that 10-year-old Olivia Barnett of Dover, Del. has been selected as the winner of the "Riding Shotgun With Kyle Busch Motorsports" essay contest for the Greater Dover area. Barnett's name and picture will adorn the area above the passenger side window of Kyle Busch's No. 18 Traxxas Toyota Tundra for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Lucas Oil 200 at Dover International Speedway this Friday, May 13. In addition, Dover International Speedway has provided Barnett and her parents with passes to attend Friday's race.
Barnett, a student at Holy Cross School in Dover had her essay chosen among submissions from children age 5-12 in the Greater Dover area. The contest called for children to submit an essay of 150 words or less that described an experience and/or achievement that occurred within the past 12 months and affected their lives in a positive way. Barnett's essay described her experience raising money for young children with leukemia and how it taught her that true happiness comes from giving back to others.
A motivational letter that Kyle Busch received during the off season from Kyle Savoie (sa-VOY), a 12-year old fan, inspired Busch to develop a program that will recognize children for experiences and achievements that had a positive effect on their lives. To recognize Kyle Savoie for inspiring the contest, a decal with his name and picture adorned the area above the passenger window of the No. 18 Dollar General Toyota Tundra driven by Busch in the season-opening race at Daytona International Speedway on Feb. 18.
