Thanks to a personal connection to the cause, NASCAR driver Joey Gase has a passion for sharing the importance of organ and tissue donation that rivals his passion for racing. When he was just 18 years old, his mother suffered from a brain aneurism and passed away. Joey made the decision to honor her wish to be an organ donor, choosing to save lives through her untimely death. The experience sparked a fire in Joey to spread the word far and wide about how the decision to become a donor can truly save lives. Gase will be in Georgia to race in Saturday's NASCAR XFINITY Series Heads Up Georgia 250 but on February 24, he will unveil his car at the Forest Park Department of Driver Services and advocate for donation. The design highlights the need for donation, and also features the images of several Georgians who have been impacted by donation. Photos of the Puckett family, whose son, Thomas, was an organ donor and of Derrick, Thomas' organ recipient, will adorn Joey's car when he takes to the Atlanta Speedway on February 27th. Every year, thousands of lives are saved by organ and tissue donations. Here in Georgia, more than 5,700 people are waiting for a transplant that will save their life. Each designation matters, every person who documents their decision to save lives in Georgia could one day save eight lives, and improve dozens more.
