    Terrible news from DRO FB PRAYERS NEEDED for RICK ECKERTíS 5 year old GRANDSON and family. He was severely burned tonight requiring life flight. The only details I know are what has been posted in the comments of the attached post. Apparently when refueling the race car the fuel ignited and got onto Rickís grandson causing burns all over his head, face, shoulders and hands 😰🙏Father God lay your protective hand on this child and draw near his parents and grandparents. In the name of Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior Amen 🙏

    It hurts bad to hear about something like that happening to a child so young. Hoping for a quick recovery for him and the entire family.

    This is horrible. I know Rick has to be so upset, along with everyone involved.
    I also don't think any 5 yr old should be that close to a car, while refueling or firing up, etc.

    Agreed, donít think small children should be in pits period. That discussion can be for another day. Prayers to the family.

    I have no idea what the circumstances of this terrible situation was. When fueling static electricity can cause terrible outcomes. Again, this is very unfortunate. Pray for a speedy recovery.

    Lord, be with Lennox today, his parents & grandparents.

    Grant them comfort & peace in the name of Jesus.
    Give the doctors wisdom in how to provide the best care/treatment possible to little Lennox and his family.

    Your word says..."by your stripes we are healed," so claim that healing power for Lennox, in the name of Jesus.

    AMEN

    I've heard it's the filter in the funnel igniting.

    Do they have a ground wire when fueling the cars? And would that actually help?
