Nicholas and Wendy Batley
Wendy Batley is the loving mother of Nicholas Batley, from Mooresville, NC. Nicholas was Dream On 3’s first Dream Kid, or as he likes to call himself, “The Pioneer.” Nicholas, who was 14 at the time of his experience, lives with a medical condition known as Asperger’s Syndrome. Asperger’s is a higher functioning form of Autism, but still significantly impacts many areas of his life. On May 26, 2013, during the Coca Cola 600 NASCAR Race, Nicholas’s dreams came true. He was able to meet and spend time with his sports hero, Darrell Waltrip, where he enjoyed a private meet-and-greet, received signed memorabilia, and had an opportunity to show off his best “Boogity, Boogity, Boogity” impression. When Nicholas grows up, his desire is to become a sports commentator like Waltrip. His mother says this experience was life changing & gave him the confidence to continue working towards this life goal!
