LUKAS: CONTINUING WINNER'S CIRCLE TRADITION AT THE SPA

That is a GREAT story!!!  What a wonderful thing for him to do.  What great memories all those kids will have because of that kind gesture.  Kudos to Mr. Lukas for being so thoughtful and gracious.

Yes it is a great story and I think things like this need to be brought out to show some of the good things in racing.

Absolutely they do!  And he's right, it's easy and doesn't cost much.

Love it!  Good for Lukas - something so simple, so cheap, yet leaves such a lasting impact on the kid and their family.  :-)
