Parker Kligerman has raced on several different NASCAR circuits, including the highest level Sprint Cup Series. He is also a television personality, having done work for NBC Sports’ NASCAR America. When Parker was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2010, his life changed for the better. Until that point, he was living in a fog and constantly feeling sick. A fellow driver recommended that he get tested for celiac, which ultimately allowed Parker to get back to his energetic and healthy lifestyle. Now, Parker has made it his mission to spread the word about celiac disease and to show people that a gluten-free lifestyle can include delicious food choices and a variety of options at their favorite restaurants.
GIG is happy to announce that we will be backing Parker in his efforts to raise awareness and we are proud to be a sponsor of the Gluten-Free Car. We see the Gluten-Free Car as becoming a symbol for the gluten-free community; turning the spotlight on delicious foods, promoting safe dining experiences, and bringing recognition to those manufacturer sponsors that the everyday consumer may know but may not associate with the special-diet market. We are hoping that you will join Parker and GIG on this quest.
