Local Woman Meets NASCAR Driver
updated: Mar 27, 2014, 12:15 PM

By John Palminteri

A Santa Maria woman, Stephanie Snow, who has a challenging medical condition known as FOP, met her favorite NASCAR driver, Ryan Newman, in person at the Auto Club Speedway over the weekend. Snow contacted team owners and a major sponsor to get into the garage area for a meet and greet while she was at the Auto Club 400 . Newman has an animal rescue organization and Snow is a long time animal lover, which gave the two a special connection. Snow was ecstatic and said she watches the races weekly from home cheering Newman loudly. Newman carried one of her FOP bracelets in his #31 Chevy Sunday at 200+ miles an hour. FOP is an extremely rare condition that turns muscles, and ligaments into bone.
