The No. 00 SR2 Motorsports Toyota driven by Blake Koch will compete in support of Tripp Halstead, the 2-year-old Atlanta boy who was injured last month by a falling tree limb

Tripp Halstead, the little boy who has captured the heart of the state and the country as he recovers from a falling tree limb last month, will have a presence in Saturday's Nationwide Series Ford Eco-Boost 300 at the Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The No. 00 SR2 Motorsports Toyota, driven by Blake Koch, will carry the logos of the Team BOOM fundraiser set up in support of Tripp and his family.

As everyone knows, Tripp was injured on October 29 when high winds from Superstorm Sandy caused a tree limb to fall onto the little boy's head. Though a long road still awaits him, Tripp has already made miraculous progress after doctors' grim initial prognosis.

The black and red Camry Koch will drive is not the first NASCAR-related show of support for Tripp and his family. NASCAR icon Darrell Waltrip, who voiced an automobile version of himself in Tripp's favorite film "Cars," was the latest of the film's voice actors to offer up their support via Twitter. He joined Larry the Cable Guy (Mater) and Bonnie Hunt (Sally) in those who have sent tweets to Tripp's family as their characters, while the film's star Owen Wilson left a voice mail as his Lightning McQueen character.
