Student gears up for South Boston race

June 25, 2009 : University Advancement staff

One Liberty University student can truly say he is on the fast track to success.

Stephen Berry will take his place behind the wheel July 3 in a NASCAR Whelen All-American Series race at South Boston Speedway in South Boston, Va. His car is being sponsored by Liberty University Online.

“My goal is to graduate from Liberty University and succeed at the highest levels in NASCAR,” Stephen told the Liberty Journal.

A junior sport management major, Berry also takes courses through Liberty University Online, making it possible for him to earn a degree while still pursuing a racing career.

Berry is proud to be part of an established distance learning program and to carry on the mission of Liberty University and its founder, Dr. Jerry Falwell.

“Dr. Falwell was instrumental in my being able to pursue my dream,” he said. “I would love to honor Dr. Falwell and Liberty University by becoming a Champion for Christ in the competitive sport of NASCAR racing.”
