An Open Letter to Greg & Shari Belyea from Series Founder Shayne Tenace:
On this day that we of the Go Nuclear Late Model Series celebrate another successful season, a season once again piloted by you two wonderful and generous individuals, I would like to take the time to thank you. Thank you, not just for your contributions of the last two years as you took the helm of the series (adding much-needed level of structure), but thank you for support that you showed the series from year one, thank you for the camaraderie, and thank you for setting the kind of example that others should strive for with your dedication, consistency, generosity, and your unwavering drive to help others less fortunate than you via your Kids R Kool program and others. The contributions from the two of you were critical to the series even being in existence, have left the Go Nuclear Series in a better place, and, by interacting with you both, have left me a better person. Thank you again and know that you are appreciated by me, by our teams, and by the many people that you have positively impacted by your actions and kindness.
