NASCAR Drivers Share Testimonies Of Putting God First

Some folks may look up to sports teams or players but really not know their stories. But in this incredible video, NASCAR drivers share testimonies of putting God first.

The video starts out with Darrell Waltrip sharing how he thought he had to be arrogant in racing. Then, Trevor Bayne shares that the focus required for racing is very intense. 

Michael Mcdowell chimes in that one mistake in their sport can cost the race. Aric Almirola says the car is 3,600 pounds and there is the large challenge of controlling it. David Starr says that the intensity builds as a race goes on. 

The men candidly share the excitement of doing well in a race, but the fleeting feeling afterward. They knew something was missing in their lives.

Joe Gibbs begins to share wisdom that real adversity or real success are the hardest things in life. Suddenly, each racer shares how they came to their saving faith in Jesus. 

Many of them address their own selfishness and pride in how the Lord has humbled and grown them and given them joy. At the end they share their names and it ends with Joe Gibbs saying, “In this race, I finish second.”

One thing that stood out to me in this video is that even though each racer had different testimony of faith, God drew them into a relationship with Him. 

Many times it was due to the joyful lives believers were living around them in the midst of their worldly successes. Christ can shine brightly through us and others will see His love for them. Thankfully people were bold enough to share their faith with the racers and they all are second for Jesus. 

“And anyone who does not take up his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me. Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.” Matthew 13:44-46
