‘George to the Rescue' Renovate Home for Manchester Family

If smiles are contagious then neighbors and loved ones of the Stratton family will be grinning ear to ear for quite some time.

The Manchester family stepped into their new home for the first time Wednesday as part of the "George to the Rescue" show.

"I think it's going to take a while to process all of it," Bill Stratton said.

The family's 7-year-old son Nicholas suffers from epilepsy and cerebral palsy. His reaction to his renovated digs was enough to cause a smile chain reaction.

"At any moment he can go into an epileptic seizure so they wanted to make sure that you always have the sight lines that you could always see him," George Oliphant said.

The top-to-bottom renovation included making the living and kitchen areas more open in order for Nicholas' parents to keep a better eye on him.

But the surprise scene didn't end there - NASCAR driver Joey Logano, Nicholas' favorite star, met them inside with several more surprises in store.

"This is what it's all about, this is why we do what we do, this is why drive race cars to be able to touch people," Joey Logano said.

Logano not only invited the family to his race in New Hampshire this weekend but also gave Nicholas the thrill of a lifetime with a burnout around the block.

"A lot of fun to give him a ride on one of the race cars we had here today at least down his neighborhood I'm not sure any burnouts have ever happened in this neighborhood before we may have broke the law a little bit for that," Logano said.

A high speed cause filled with fast moving hearts for one very deserving family.

"To have somebody come in and do it we're more than thankful and it's just proof that prayers do get answered," Bill Stratton said.
