Even though Scott would never have a significant sponsor, he would still compete against the best in NASCAR.
What does it take to make the ultimate sacrifice?

From very humble beginnings in the Cincinnati area to courageous actions in the Italian theater, John Fox is an excellent example of Black America displaying bravery on the battlefield in the face of discrimination.

Recovery Replay is a podcast powered by Meadows Behavioral Healthcare. We start from the beginning and share a person's recovery journey from three different perspectives. First, there is the person in recovery. Next, a support person could be a spouse, sibling, or best friend. Lastly, there is the clinician. They will provide proper commentary, context, and teachable moments to each story. The stories you hear will be transparent and candid. Also, on Recovery Replay, you will see that people in recovery are not a monolith. They are athletes, business professionals, college students. But they are also our neighbors, spouses, or even our children.
