Georgia NASCAR driver Chase Elliott’s new car artwork

Mary Frances Webb has been inspired by art all her life.

OCONEE COUNTY, Ga. — The artwork of a 15-year-old cancer patient reaches an international stage.

Mary Frances Webb has been inspired by art all her life.

“Ever since I could pick up a pencil, I’ve been drawing,” she said.

However, she never imagined that her art would be seen this way. On Sunday, her design will wrap around NASCAR driver Chase Elliott’s No. 9 Chevy at Darlington Raceway in South Carolina.

It is part of a partnership with the Chase Elliott Foundation and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

Mary, a cancer patient at Children’s, will see her draft round on the track when Elliott races for the Cook Out Southern 500.

The North Oconee High School student and the designs of several other young patients were chosen to decorate Elliott’s car, shoes and uniform for this weekend. Many of those items will later be auctioned off to raise money for charity.

This will be Webb’s first NASCAR race she will attend in person. She will also meet Elliott, a native of Dawsonville, Georgia.
