Twenty-four-year-old Westport, Connecticut native Parker Kligerman comes from humble beginnings at the local kart tracks of Connecticut, but Kligerman has achieved remarkable results, and has become one of racing’s most promising young talents.

Kligerman's talent helped him climb the NASCAR ladder, running both the Camping World Truck Series and Nationwide Series, leading him to earn a spot in the top tier, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

The Gluten Free Car

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 racecar 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.

The mission of his Gluten-Free campaign:

* Spread awareness about Celiac Disease and how to get tested.

* Promote options for Celiacs and those who are living a gluten-free lifestyle.

Join Jules and Parker as they discuss overcoming celiac disease and spreading awareness of the benefits of a gluten free lifestyle, on and off the track.
