Donate Life Texas NASCAR Honorees

For Donate Life Texas and NASCAR driver Joey Gase, this weekend’s race is about more than a checkered flag and the roar of the crowd.  It’s about the people whose lives have been touched by organ, eye and tissue donation.  We remember the Donor Heroes who have given the gift of life to others in their passing.  We celebrate the transplant recipients who make each day of their second chance count.  And, we hope for The Call to come for those still on the transplant waiting list.

With that in mind, the Donate Life Texas, Joey Gase and ZAK Products are proud to announce the names and faces that will ride the track with Joey during this weekend’s races.  We encourage you to watch Donate Life Texas’ social media throughout the event for photos of the cars, Joey and his team and many of the Donor Families and Honorees.
