Go Fund Me Account Started for NASA Texas Member Pat Welch

NASA Texas Spec E46 racer Pat Welch has been diagnosed with throat cancer, and some of his friends have started a GoFundMe page to help the Welches with their expenses as Pat fights off the disease.

If you’d like to extend a helping hand to a member of the NASA Texas family, visit his GoFundMe page and donate.


  1. Dear Brett Becker and everyone at NASA,

    Thank you for sharing this in Speed News! The out pouring of love and support has been so uplifting to my family and me. Everyone’s generosity raised enough money to completely cover our living expenses while we were in Houston at MD Anderson where I sought treatment. I can’t say enough about the folks in the Texas Region who stepped up to help, especially Will Faules who found our fund page that was started by friends in Midland, TX where we live. NASA is a wonderful auto racing and HPDE organization that promotes fun, friendly competition in a safe environment. But when it comes time to help one of their own in need, they are indeed remarkable.
