Last weekend, at the 24 Hours of Daytona, an additional driver name appeared on the #3 C7.R: Tripp Postmus. Postmus is a youngster and he is, unfortunately, battling cancer. As part of the “Make A Wish” program, which helps bring dreams to reality for children with serious illnesses, Postmus chose Corvette Racing. The team happily obliged.
Not only did Postmus’ name make it onto the race car, but they brought him and his family down to visit the Corvette Racing garage after the Daytona outing. Kudos to everyone at Corvette Racing.
We were honored to be chosen by Tripp Postmus and his family to host his @MakeAWish experience at @DISupdates for the #Rolex24! It definitely made our weekend! You’ll always have the support and prayers of everyone at Corvette Racing and @TeamChevy! pic.twitter.com/Ua5bkgezks

But, that wasn’t all. Corvette Racing crew chief, Dan Binks, issued a message last Monday saying the team will be putting multiple items up for auction on eBay to benefit Postmus. The items range from hats, fire suits, trophies and posters. Currently, three days remain on the auctions, which you can browse through here.
Additionally, Corvette Racing shared a link to Postmus’ GoFundMe page, which users can donate to at the link here.
