Heritage Automotive & Race to Read
"If they engage some kids that really struggle with reading, there's a real potential there to reach a lot of kids that money can't touch."
—Troy Kingsbury, Founder, Race to Read Program
In 2016 1,300 Vermont kids participated in the Race to Read Program, reading over 19,000 books.
Whether in racing or in life, Race to Read and the Lanphear sisters ignite in children a drive to never give up, never stop dreaming, and never underestimate the power of reading.
Peyton and Reilly Lanphear are the story behind the story. They burst onto the Thunder Road street stock racing scene when Reilly was only 15. Since then these inspiring young women have used their passion for racing as an unlikely way to support literacy in our state and inspire a love of reading in our kids.
Everything these sisters learned on the racetrack has empowered thousands of Vermont children in the classroom, but there are thousands more we could be reaching. Help The H-Team and Race to Read by watching their story, spreading the word, and signing your school up at RacetoRead.org

"They are able to prove that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to."
—Phil Scott, Governor of Vermont
