Not only did Joey Gase race to a Top 5 finish in the Winn-Dixie 300 at Talladega in May, he gained a tremendous amount of exposure for a cause near and dear to his heart: organ, tissue and eye donation.
Before the race FOX Sports did a special during the pre-race show on Joey’s mother Mary and how the Jimmy Means Racing #52 team is using racing to promote donation and honor donors and their families.
The first link below is to the pre-race special and the second link is to the post-race interview. Both of these were live on FOX Sports. The link at bottom is a recap of Joey’s career-best finish at Talladega.
