Grady County - Chase Livingston loved speed. Best friend Mason Dixon says, "He like to go fast. That's what he liked to do. He was a racer, that was his thing. He liked to race."
And there's a room full of trophies to prove that not only did he love racing, racing loved him. So it's only fitting that in memory of Chase, a vigil will be held on the race track where he spent most of his time.
Vigil organizer Donna Smyly says, "This is something that I want to do, because if I had a child this age that died, I really would like to have someone to do something so special."
But special memories, although nice, won't bring him back.
"Me and him connected. We had deep conversations," says Dixon. "There's not too many of my friends that I can talk to like him. That'll probably be the thing I miss the most."
But there is one thing that gives Chases family and friends hope, he lived life to the fullest.
Smyly says, "That Diamond Rio song, 'One more Day', Chase never needed that one more day. Chase lived everyday, as if it was his last. Great kid."
And now he's right where he belongs. "He is in the winner's circle now," says Smyly.
The vigil begins Tuesday night at 9:00 at Fas trac in Cairo. Chase Livingston's funeral is planned for Wednesday afternoon at 2:00 PM at Cornerstone Church of Christ in Thomasville.
