SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - There's some good news to a story we first told you about Tuesday on News 8 at 5.

Ten-year-old Luke Barbarita is hoping to raise money for diabetes research by designing a race car. We're happy to report Luke is now in the top five, with $1,181 raised, all thanks to the generosity of News 8 viewers.

Luke and his brother both have type 1 diabetes, and hope to donate $5,000 by winning the design contest. But they still need your support.
