NASCAR legend and Hall of Fame driver David Pearson, 80, from Spartanburg, is recovering from a stroke suffered in December, according to a statement from his family. NASCAR released the statement to media Wednesday.

Rogers’ talent was in vocal performance, singing “How Great Thou Art”. Rogers, a sophomore who is pursuing an Associate in Arts degree with the major of elementary education, is the daughter of David and Kelley Rogers.
