The National Center for Missing Adults (NCMA) and the Racing for the Missing (RFTM), a personal awareness & safety program, profiles a Corpus Christi, Texas missing woman on the hood of the #75 Jack Sellers Racing Chevrolet Monte Carlo driven by Auburn California’s Thomas Martin. Jack Sellers is no stranger to the NASCAR Grand National West formerly known as the Winston West Series. Jack joined the series in 1985 and has competed every year since, sometimes fielding two or three cars.


Kathy Sue Haskell, disappeared October sixteenth of 2003 Kathy was last seen at approximately 10:00 PM at her residence in the vicinity of the 14000 block of Coquina Bay Ave. in Corpus Christi, TX. Her burgundy 1996 Dodge Caravan was later located abandoned with her purse and keys locked inside near the 14400 block of State Hwy 361 in Corpus Christi, TX.


Kathy has red hair, blue eyes and a light complexion. Kathy is 5 foot 2 inches tall weighing approximately 170 pounds. If you have information concerning her whereabouts you are urged to contact the Corpus Christi Police Department at (361) 886-2850.


Racing for the Missing, by positioning a larger then life vinyl likeness of a missing person and their contact information on the most valuable location on a racecar, is able to reach the public in larger numbers. Our hope is to generate that one lead law enforcement can use resulting in a safe recovery. RFTM is in its ninth year of providing assistance for families with missing loved ones and hope to thousands of missing person’s families coast to coast. “What began as a kind gesture in 1999 evolved into a passion for my husband and I” said Shelley LaMoure Co-founder of RFTM.


Thomas Martin joined the effort in 2006 with an exceptional presentation on national television. “We are very excited to have Thomas and his team again making an impact in the lives of so many people. With their help the message is clear and strong. They truly care and sacrifice valuable hood space on their racecars for the families they will assist throughout this 2007 racing campaign” said Darrell LaMoure Co-founder of RFTM.


Martin can be seen driving the #75 NASCAR in the Grand National West series for Jack Sellers. Martin will be racing at the famous Thunder Hill Raceway in Kyle, Texas on Saturday March 31, 2007, in the All-State Texas Thunder “150”. Gates open to NASCAR fans, the greatest sporting fans anywhere, at 12:00 PM. Time trails begin at 5:15 PM and racing begins at 8:30 PM and can viewed from the comfort of your home on HD Net television. Check your local listings for an accurate broadcast time and can be seen again on the SPEED channel April 12th at 2:30 PM ET.
