Instead of football helmets, more than 30 Miami Dolphins players donned racing helmets at K1 Speed Fort Lauderdale for an afternoon of go-kart racing with foster teenagers aging out of the program today.
All of the kids were chosen to participate by representatives of HANDY, Inc., the organization responsible for placing them in foster homes and providing a nurturing environment for those still waiting. This was a chance for these teenagers to zip around the track with some of their idols and have some fun at the same time.
“I saw this go up on the board last week about an opportunity to race go-karts with the kids and it immediately sparked my interest so I knew I was going to be here,” said quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who showed up with his wife, Lauren. “Some of these kids have tough decisions and just to be able to go out and have some fun, do something different and something that we can both enjoy but neither one of us is a professional at was a good time.”
Current Miami Dolphins such as Ryan Tannehill, Matt Moore, Chas Alecxih, Chandler Burden, Dan Carpenter, Nolan Carroll, John Denney, Dannell Ellerbe, Brandon Fields, Nate Garner, Jonas Gray, Brian Hartline, John Jerry, Reshad Jones, Josh Kaddu, Jorvorskie Lane, Lamar Miller and Richard Marshall joined Jonathan Martin, Andrew McDonald, Koa Misi, Moore, Jared Odrick, Julian Posey, Mike Pouncey, Kheeston Randall, Josh Samuda, Derrick Shelby, Austin Spitler, Randy Starks, Tannehill, Marcus Thigpen, Olivier Vernon, Cameron Wake and Philip Wheeler on the track. They all were thrilled to be there for the cause. Click here to read more.
HANDY’s mission is to embrace, educate, and empower vulnerable youth to become engaged, productive adults. HANDY annually serves more than 1,300 at-risk children and youth, between the ages of birth to 23 years. HANDY’s programs focus on education, youth development, and economic self-sufficiency.

Friend of K1 Speed, Conor Daly, is confirmed to race the No. 41 car with A.J. Foyt Racing! Daly, 21, will partner with the team’s full-season driver, Takuma Sato, in next month’s event.
“I almost can’t describe what it means to have the opportunity to race in the Indianapolis 500,” Daly said. “I have been to the 500 every year of my existence except for last year when I raced in Monaco. It is truly my home race since I was born and raised in the Indianapolis area. I am so thankful that A.J. and Larry (Foyt) have given me my first shot at the greatest race in the world. I know this will sound cheesy, but I’ve never been happier in my life – this race means so much to me.”
Daly tested with the Foyt team Dec. 13 at Sebring International Raceway. His father, Derek Daly, competed in six Indianapolis 500s.
A.J. Foyt said of Daly’s test at Sebring, “He was fast, smooth and didn’t get into trouble. When we made a change on the car, he felt it.”
Daly had a strong run in the season-opening GP2 event in Malaysia. After qualifying 16th in Kuala Lumpur for Hilmer Motorsports, Daly finished 13th in the first GP2 race and seventh in the second.
