HAP and MDAHU Give Beaumont’s Smallest Patients ‘The NASCAR Experience’

July 18, 2018
DETROIT, Mich., – Michigan-based insurer Health Alliance Plan and the Metro Detroit Association of Health Underwriters (MDAHU) recently teamed up to donate a Dream Racer car to the pediatric unit of Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Mich.

Dream Racer cars are child-sized versions of real NASCAR race cars that are being placed in children’s hospitals and cancer centers worldwide. The goal is to help children get though the difficult treatment they’re often required to endure. Each car includes a flat panel TV, CD/DVD player, Play Station®, IV stand, oxygen bottle holder, easy-roller coasters with brake and storage trunk.

Built in North Carolina by retired NASCAR builder and founder of Children’s Dream Racer, Mark “Smitty” Smith, the cars are made with the same materials used to build real NASCAR race cars
