On October 1, the Gorman & Bunch Orthodontics family unveiled our handcrafted derby car and raced down Main Street of Westfield, Indiana, in the Grand Junction Derby & Street Festival—all in support of Janus Developmental Services. The event takes place annually, hosted by the Westfield Parks Department.

Built by Dr. Jason Bunch, his brother, Ashley, and their dad, Keith, “The Smile Ride” speedster took to the pavement four times—with our clinical assistant Chelsey behind the wheel all day. After a first-round loss, we rallied to win our next two races. But sadly, our little derby car’s pushbar could not hold up against Dr. Bunch’s over-exuberant competitive spirit and broke off the vehicle in the final push.

While we came up just a bit short in the end, we were all winners that day as all proceeds supported Janus Developmental Services, which provides individuals with disabilities opportunities for education, employment training, and independent living.

We’re already dreaming how we can enhance our derby car and bring home the championship next year. We hope you’ll join us then! In the meantime, check out some photos from the day above, as well a great video by the Westfield Parks Department below.
