Hello everyone! My Name is Rylee Jo but everyone just calls me RJo. I received my nickname from my mom who came up with it from one of my favorite racers Kenny Montgomery "KMO".
A little about myself I am 9 years old and have been racing since I was 5. I love using my racing platform to give back to the local community and help others.
In my spare time I volunteer at Fill with Hope packing Hope Totes. Hope Totes are filled with different snacks and drink for kids in need of meals over the weekend. They are delivered to the school and discreetly placed in the children’s backpacks to be sent home each Friday. Many of these kids would not eat from lunch at school on Friday until breakfast at school on Monday.
We just got through with our 2nd Annual RJo Racing Back 2 School Backpack Giveaway where we were able to help over 800 kids with backpacks full of school supplies. Which not only helps the kids get a good start for school but also helps take some financial burden off the parents as well.
We like to have fun and just hosted our 2nd Annual Trunk or Treat Event for the kids on Halloween where we handed out candy to over 200 families in our local community.
We are in the works on wrapping up our 2nd annual canned food drive to benefit our local food bank in Vega, Texas and High Plains Food Bank, in Amarillo, Texas.
We currently are collecting gifts for our Annual RJo Racing Gift Roundup at Christmas time where for the last 3 years we have donated gifts to local children's home and Family Support Services of Amarillo.
