Throughout life, sports are definitely a hub for a lot of things. Predominately, you can expect them to be a getaway from reality, allowing you to cheer on your favorite team or driver, attempting to will them to victory as you can really get into some sports. However, beyond that, sports really offer up so much more as they can be transformed from something that’s entertaining to watch and eventually become something that can shape your life and even help you touch the life of others if you’re lucky enough.

In this one, we get to join in with NASCAR star, Denny Hamlin, as he gets tied up in a moment that is incredibly emotional and might make you a little bit emotional as well. As it turns out, for Hamlin, at the very beginning of his interest in racing, he had a moment that he would never forget, a moment that would inspire him to do better and to work on his abilities until the point where he would eventually reach the biggest stage of them all. As he has seemed to climb to the top of this mountain, it’s kind of fitting that things have managed to come around full circle, allowing Hamlin’s ability behind the wheel to inspire somebody else to get behind the wheel and race.

Seeing something like this can’t help but make you want to get out there and do good for others.
