Jewish Nascar Driver: There Can Be Only One...

Nascar can also have some Jewish pride with it's sole Jewish driver from NJ: Jon Denning. He discusses with Ynet news what it's like being the only Jew in this dangerous sport. The article points out that although Jon may not consider himself "religious" he utters the traveling prayer before every race: "May it be Your will, Lord, My G-d and G-d of my ancestors, to lead me, to direct my steps, and to support me in peace. Lead me in life, tranquil and serene, until I arrive at where I am going." Jon is very proud of his Jewish heritage and hopefully will inspire others to do the same.
