My name is Don Squirek, I’m currently a driver competing in Mazda’s driver development series, the Spec-mx5 Challenge Series. I recently had severe pain in my left eye, and after 3 weeks of back and forth with my doctors I was admitted to the hospital and was diagnosed with optic neuritis brought on by MS. After the diagnosis was made I was successfully treated for the issue with my eye, and have now started treatment for my MS.
While in the hospital I did much research into how MS would impact my ability to participate in motorsport and I came across the Peachtree Three iRacing event. When not in the real car I spend as much time as possible in iRacing. So together with the help of my team I believe we can do much to support such a fantastic cause!
