CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Patients at Cincinnati Children's Hospital hung out with NASCAR's Sam Hornish, Jr. on Tuesday.
Hornish visited the Tri-State to promote the Kentucky Speedway's doubleheader race weekend, scheduled for September 20-22. On Tuesday, he took a break from the fast lane to spend some quality time with his youngest fans.
"There's a lot of kids out there that have a tremendous amount of different issues and using the little bit of celebrity that I have to be able to come out and excite some of them and talk to them about racing, whatever it might be on a certain day, it's always a good thing," Hornish told FOX19. "I think one of the great things about me being able to do this is at times it brings awareness to the hospital."
