Former Corvette Racing driver and NASCAR road course ringer Ron Fellows has given an Ontario man suffering from ALS a day to remember after driving him around Canadian Tire Motorsports Park in Bowmanville, Ontario in a C7 Corvette Z06.
According to Canadian motoring site Driven Wheels, General Motors Canada got word that a Port Perry, Ontario man was trying to raise money to buy a Corvette for his dad, Scott McKenzie, who suffers from ALS. In the true spirit of the holiday season, GM employees scrambled and organized for McKenzie to stop by Mosport for a ride in a C7 Corvette Z06 with Fellows.
Driven Wheels said McKenzie had a huge smile on his face as he exited the Corvette, adding that he was “just thrilled,” with the experience. McKenzie, described as a “hard working,” man, still hopes to own a Corvette of his own, though, with his GoFundMe page for the cause currently at $5,745.
Most patients who suffer from ALS live just two-to-three years, so if enough money is raised for Scott’s Corvette, it will be sold following his passing and the money donated to an ALS-related charity. If there goal is not reached, the money will also be donated to charity.
