Rex Reynolds has been a NASCAR fan for more than 40 years and the first race he attended was an absolute classic – the 1976 Firecracker 400 at Daytona International Speedway, a race won by NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee Cale Yarborough.
Reynolds himself is a favorite, among people involved with the Boys & Girls Clubs of North Alabama. He has volunteered on the organization’s board of directors for 13 years and was inducted into the Boys & Girls Club Hall of Fame in 2010. The former Boys & Girls Club member recruits sponsors for annual club events and also recruits other volunteers.
Funds received from the Betty Jane France Humanitarian Award will go toward providing daily programs and implementation of a STEM Lab in a potential new club in Huntsville, Alabama.
