Denny Hamlin Helmet Design Contest Winner - Bernard "Sonny" VanBuskirk III


The winner of the Denny Hamlin Helmet Design Contest is Bernard "Sonny" VanBuskirk III, the 11-year-old son of Express Operations Manager Bernard VanBuskirk.

In February 1998, the March of Dimes mission to give every baby a healthy start struck close to home for the VanBuskirk family. After a routine check-up, doctors determined Sonny's mother would need to deliver early to protect her health and that of Sonny. Weighing only 3 pounds and small enough to fit in the palm of his father's hand, Sonny was born 7 weeks prematurely. After 5 long weeks and fear Sonny may not survive, the VanBuskirk's finally brought home their son.

Eleven years later, Sonny is a healthy, vibrant boy. Because of the March of Dimes and the medical care Sonny received 11 years ago, he is playing baseball, attending NASCAR races with his father and grandfather, helping his mother to cook and take care of his Nanna and walking in the March for Babies event each spring.

thank you for the comments it was alot of fun in TX i hope i get another chance to go.

Thank you everyone for your nice comments. We had a fun time at the presentation event. Don't forget to watch the race on the 18th and look for the helmet. Go to Nascar.com and enter March of Dimes in the search field and click on the video under the picture of Denny Hamlin in the gocart holding the checkered flag. This will give you a video clip of the presentation day in Dallas. When we get settled from the trip we will figure out a way to post more pictures of the helmet. Thanks for the support and please help the March of Dimes if you can.
