"Jock" (Ervin Allen) as know by everyone and at the NHRA drag races is the lead technician for Steve Johnson Racing. He tested positive for COVID-19. On May 9th he was taken to UAB, a trauma 1 hospital and immediately was put on a ventilator. His mom was admitted on May 3rd. also on a ventilator. Ms. Allen lost her battle with COVID-19 on May 18th. Now one of his sisters' and his brother were just tested positive, brother Chancellor was just admitted. Jock doesn't smoke, drink or curse and is 27 years old. He has no idea about his mother or anything else that has happened since early May. Jock has a fiancé, another sister, uncle, aunt and Grandma with lots of nieces and nephews.
He just bought a lil fixer up house near his mom. Many of us spend money on lots of things, some are necessities - some are not. For those that don’t know us, we are a team of people that raised life changing resources for the late John Myers’ family. Bluntly put, the difference is Jock will be living and back at the track at some point. Plus he has a great team in (and out) of the hospital as well as lots of powerful prayer. 100% of this webpage the proceeds of sales will go to Jock. This is a great investment in a great human. God Bless and thank you for your support.

Updates May, 23 2020
Update May 23, 2020: Jock brought all the UAB medical ICU nurses a catered lunch today. Well not really, Jock. But our good friends (family) the Dalton's sure did. Look at the smiles on these #frontline workers. Really makes us feel so good.
As for Jock, he has been in the same position for a while so his body is a little swollen. This means they have got to move him so that has to be the big job today. We were also told about the imaging of his lungs, again they were good so he gets an “that-a-boy.” Going to try some more breathing trials today too. Fingers are crossed that he keeps gaining some strength.
One last quickie ... Did you all see the Go Fund Me page? It really did good. I want to run it by the other classes and racers and see if the fuel teams would consider helping. I sure hope that's cool. #NHRA
