It's it's really neat. There's some that are <hes> coming to raises for the first time and and then there's some that live in the regions close to the race to where they don't have a ton of travel costs and it's worked out crates. I can't thank the tracks enough other fans. I think new hampshire they opened up for race fans to donate tickets <hes> whereas most tracks <hes> <unk> through an another chunk of a hundred on them chevrolet they jumped in daytona july race and added fifty hot pit passes for the men and women and so each tracks had some fun with it and again again.

He is given tons of tickets away to the troops and veterans. That's awesome awesome. It's really cool and i've actually seen quite a few people on twitter talking about <hes> getting tickets through that so it's really cool to see him giving back to folks who have served in this country and it's a unique way of getting fans in the stands.
