Our 22nd Daytona 500 is in the books! Our hearts are so full and we are grateful to our faithful God for His love for this community. It took many hands this last week to make it all happen and to keep it all going. What an incredible outpouring of excitement that fillled our little tent every moment of every day.
Our heart to serve Christ alongside of each other began when we got married in May of 1981- that is almost 42 years if you need help counting. God connected us to MRO in the late 90’s. We fell in love with the mission and longed to serve God in the field, outside of the church as we had done so many times before! Everything we had learned in our early years of ministry drew us deeply to the work going on at the MRO Commmunity Center. Ron Pegram and Jackie Pegram, thanks for believing in us and encouraging us to step toward the work that God was doing through MRO.
God continues to love and stir in our midst. We raise His banner week after week and He continues to faithfully draw people to Himself. Our heartbeat is to capture every moment that will lead to conversations about the gospel, to live faithfully and remain steadfast among our community, to keep loving them as God has loved us and to give our very best in order to see the kingdom of God grow and flourish in 2023. Heaven will tell of God’s faithfulness through the years and tonight I give thanks to God for allowing us to offer our hearts to the one small part of the whole of the work that God is doing in the lives of NASCAR families. Glory and honor to Him!
So grateful for our sweet little Community Center tribe of hard working ladies (and men) who bring their best every weekend to make the Community Center available to traveling families.
Until Atlanta friends!
“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.” Hebrews 10:23

With the new Nascar season fast approaching, the Motor Racing Outreach Community Center and staff are anxious to pull into Daytona to start the 2022 season.
With scheduled maintenance complete on our equipment, we have scheduled the Community Center and staff for 22 races. We have missed being able to provide support for your families as we have always done before 2020 turned our world upside down. Our staff is excited and looking forward to seeing everyone more this season.
Would you please consider helping make our 2022 season possible by sponsoring the MRO Community Center for a weekend. It has been our joy to serve NASCAR families and community for 20 plus years.
Our operational costs, as I mentioned earlier, have already begun with the annual maintenance on our equipment. Weekly staff support and operational costs related to getting equipment to the track can only be met with your help financially throughout the season.
We are so grateful for your generosity though the years through race sponsorships, regular monthly donations, corporate sponsors and weekly ongoing Community Center supply needs. Please feel free to contact me to discuss how we can partner together in supporting your family. Thank you! Melanie Self 704.507.2624 http://firstname.lastname@example.org
