As NASCAR drivers, we have to be inspiring and responsible role models, or else we are only fulfilling 50% of our potential.
I have been lucky enough to work with and support a number of nonprofits throughout my career and I am proud to continue to do so.
Back when I was racing, I always leaned heavily to supporting racing-oriented causes such as the Victory Junction Gang Camp, founded by Adam, Austin, Montgomery Lee, Pattie and Kyle Petty, The Jimmie Johnson Foundation, the Jeff Gordon Foundation, The T. Wayne Robertson Memorial Fund, the Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma, Clot Connect and the Hendrick Marrow Program.
However, as I left the race track and entered into other fields, I started to look into other causes that I could bring to the attention of my fans, friends, colleagues and the general public.
Through various events in my life and meeting really interesting people doing really amazing work I found new passions in completely different fields.
