NASCAR Driver Rides With Blind Man Around Charlotte Speedway


We're not sure if this a look of excitement or total fear on the face of NASCAR driver Kenny Wallace, but the man in the driver's seat, retired sheriff deputy Ronnie Presnell, seems to be enjoying every minute of it. Wallace helped Presnell, who lost his sight in 1998, cross an item off his bucket list by acting as his eyes as Presnell drove around Charlotte Motor Speedway recently. Presnell revved up his restored 1968 Camaro during his blind laps around the speedway.
