‘NASCAR Angels’ Reality TV Show ‘Extreme Makeover Home Edition’ Nascar Style

October 27, 2008 04:00 PM by Paulene Hinds

Straight from the heart of NASCAR, the mission of “NASCAR Angels” is to find deserving people, share their stories and fix their cars in a show that celebrates the best in all of us. It’s “Pimp My Ride” meets “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition”- NASCAR Style.

This week’s episode features Katy Fuller of Kansas City, a teenager who suffers from Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), who inspired “NASCAR Angels” to fix her family’s 1996 Grand Marquis.

Their car is used for taking the family members to volunteer events and Katy’s therapeutic horseback riding lessons (the only treatment that has helped Katy).

The car has more than 130,000 miles on it and needs extensive repairs, but with money tight, the repairs can’t be made by her family. The “NASCAR Angels” teamed up with CARSTAR Collision Centers in Overland Park, Kanas and others to restore the family’s car.

Rusty Wallace, former NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion and current ABC/ESPN broadcaster, and Shannon Wiseman, NASCAR.COM talent host the weekly show. Top NASCAR drivers such as Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson make regular appearances to help the NASCAR Angels make repairs. Full episodes are currently available HERE and HERE.

Nascar Angels airs every Sunday morning at 8 AM ET on The Hallmark Channel. Check your local listings for a station and time in your area.

    Hi, my name is Vicki Culp, and I was wondering if you still helped people? If so please let me know. I need help with my Wheelchair Van. I am disabled and also a widow, on a limited income, and my car (van) needs lots of work. It leaks oil, water, but most importantly to me is the wheelchair door does not work, so I have trouble going anywhere unless someone comes to get me, and then THEY have to push me in a regular wheelchair and I hate that!
    Thank You

    Do you still help people redo their cars?
    I have a 1971 Corvette. My daughter, has Down Syndrome and cannot fit into the seat belt. I am disabled and cannot afford to fix the car. It needs work. My granddaughter who lives with us is critically ill, has a nurse every day and our money goes to helping her daily.
    Thank you,
    Nancy Pasquale
