When an injury does occur dur- ing a practice or race, Andrews explained, the patient is first seen at the infield medical center. Then, following an assessment to rule out any serious injury, the patient goes to the van for further evaluation and treatment. One of the key advantages of the healthcare service is that it provides continuity of care. Rac- ing staff members are on the road from April through November, so having health records within easy reach is another plus for the patients. "We keep a file on the people who come through here," said Andrews, "so we can contin- ue the treatment. "About 80 percent of what we see is for low back problems," said Andrews, noting that crew members spend a significant amount of time bent over the vehi- cles. "They can come here and get treated without driving across town to get to a clinic," he said. In addition to providing treat- ment and rehabilitation services, Andrews said, the Human Perfor- mance Center also offers patient education services.

Using a hot glue gun and pins, he and other volunteers created the loops with silver gray ribbon and small, red jewel dots. They then handed them out to the families participating in the retreat.

Winston Cup Racing Wives Auxiliary, Inc. finances the healthcare service through fundraisers, individual and/or cor- porate donations and auxiliary membership fees. "Their idea is to put something back into the sport," said Andrews. The auxiliary was founded in 1965 to offer both emotional and financial support to drivers and their families. Since then the organization has grown, and it now has a significant trust fund from which it can provide support to individuals and families affect- ed by tragedies resulting from Winston Cup racing. The auxiliary also provides sup- port for organizations such as We need a cure, and just learning to live with diabetes is not the only answer."

From that electronic connection, he learned that the first diabetes ribbons were made in Athens, Greece, in early April of this year. He and his wife, Kathy, were already planning activities for the up-coming fami- ly retreat, and they incorporated a ribbon-making session into the afternoon of education group meetings and outdoor games. Since then, the ADA Delaware affiliate commissioned Salisbury Pewter to cast the metal ribbons that will soon be on sale.
