GOOD NEWS Kyle Busch Helps Make Teens' Homecoming Dance Extra Special
Two Alabama high school students had a very memorable experience at their homecoming dance over the weekend, thanks to a surprise from a NASCAR star.
Holman Head, a student with special needs at Auburn High School, was asked to homecoming by his lifelong friend, Taylor Johnson, earlier this month.
For the homecoming proposal, Johnson dressed up as Holman's favorite NASCAR driver, Kyle Busch, and held a sign that asked "Holman, will you race to homecoming with me?"
When Busch heard about the sweet story, he decided to make the teens' homecoming even more special.
“Hey, Taylor and Holman, Kyle Busch here. I hear that tonight is your homecoming dance,” Busch said in a special video. “I also hear that, Holman, you’re a pretty big fan, so I just wanted to I appreciate that and you being a supporter of the Number 18 team. And for that, we're going to send you a Number 18 interstate batteries Toyota Camry to give you two a ride to the homecoming dance.”
“I also think that since we'll be racing in Talladega in a couple of weeks, maybe you two should come out and join us for the race weekend."
Busch's kind gesture touched the hearts of everyone involved and people across the country.
“When I saw the video I cried," Johnson's mother said. "I just want to say thank you to Kyle Busch for making their dream come true.”
Head's mother said it was a night her son will never forget.
"He is faced with a lot of 'nevers' in his life. Tonight one of those is scratched off of his list and becomes a reality. He will hit the replay button in his mind over and over again."
Can't wait to meet these 2 this weekend in Dega! Hope u all had a great time at the dance. https://t.co/KtrHCRyeQ5
