Two famous drag racers are getting behind a fundraiser for drag racer Joey Anton. These famous drag racers are Jay Boddie and Kye Kelley, who appear on the TV show Street Outlaws.

Both drivers have shared the Anton family’s GoFundMe link. Anton is in the hospital.

“As most of you know, Joey is currently in Denver fighting a nasty reaction to a medication or possibly a reaction to Mycoplasma Pneumonia,” the GoFundMe link says. “Either way, they’ve given him the diagnosis of Stevens-Johns syndrome. It’s causing his skin to blister and fall off. It will eventually cover most of his body, as the rash is still growing, including his eyes, mouth, and throat. Most of you know, too, that Joey would never, ever ask for this. But I would because I know he and his wife are accruing costs like crazy being away from their kids, home, and business.

“If we can do anything at all, helping ease the burden of these costs is a start. I’m like 99.99% sure that selling a race car to pay for said costs isn’t an option, a limb is a more likely an option… you know, that’s just a little Joey humor. Anything and everything is an immense relief for this family.”

We do not know how long Anton will be in the hospital at this point. Anton is a drag racer.

His GoFundMe link has raised $5,445 at the time of publication. The goal is to raise $30,000.

One of the recent donors is named Scott Taylor. This could be the same Scott Taylor, who appears on the Street Outlaws. Kye Kelley donated $500.

He is also the owner of 307 Collision Center, Inc. in Casper, Wyoming.

“Fellow racer and a good friend that’s always [given] his shirt off his back for everyone is going thru it right now,” Kye Kelley Racing said in a post. “Anything helps. Even a prayer. Thanks in advance.”[0]=AZUbbZgraYdpo7e4jcsP3tTSeOZQEUCvREvK371_hEjsVcD7bdblFoHuOgO8q-ne-asettjJFykv7xLdYvUexRrTOi0NoTTyc33BxQSj2etybx5LvJpteUq0MNZG1e-AHkn_ODKK636LwM3MJfD-ZBcheELGwRoeaHl2kdArATWKXQ&tn=%2CO%2CP-R[0]=AZUDboD5mngRXT5pTOz90MyQwI0rM0h8yj-iT4E0VaRnBboHnzIWcGi9nbm7BLvS9ucZUD6rQ55wN3O7ldK7qkuaS67r_YRcq5RCfvt2s1uBHrKCt2tVjq26gXL1lrvxMfZVgrOGZKDZRSCzsySLNBMm-HL-J-BB3-zOyFflutZg6w&__tn__=%2CO%2CP-R
