NASCAR driver Peyton Ferree is capable of whipping around a 4/10ths of a mile track at blinding speed in a supercharged, precisely tuned race car, but he cannot take his skills on a public road. He does not even have a driver’s permit. “It’s weird how you can go 100 on a track but not 60 miles per hour down the road,” he said with a smile. But that didn’t stop him from taking his talents off the track to benefit homeless women and their children Saturday. The 15-year-old speed demon and his family brought his car to Edwin A. Gibson Elementary School to raise money for Present Help Ministries, which manages an all-female homeless shelter serving the region. Proceeds from food sales at the event went toward helping the ministry provide support and shelter for homeless women and their children.
