On June 11, Skip Barber Racing School will provide a toy race car for Makenzie to drive on a special autocross course. The School’s employees, Make-A-Wish Foundation volunteers and Makenzie’s family will cheer her on as she experiences driving the course in her very own racing suit.

Following the event, the family will have the opportunity to tour Skip Barber Racing School office, see the Road Atlanta track, and take pictures in a Skip Barber Racing School Formula Car.
