Driver Joey Gase became connected to the cause at just 18-years-old when he lost his mother to a brain aneurysm. As the eldest in his family, Gase was faced with the responsibility of deciding whether to donate her organs and tissues. He made the courageous decision to donate, which healed and saved the lives of others. This experience sparked a fire in Gase to spread the word about the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation.

"I am so thankful to Nevada Donor Network for teaming up with us this weekend so we can not only race but more importantly raise awareness for organ, eye, and tissue donation and honoring all of these amazing people," said Gase.
