Rooney said, "We get notifications of all donations and they are coming in every five seconds. They are pouring in from around the country. The reality is that we’ve planted a lot of seeds in NASCAR nation and I have no doubt that those are going to do anything but grow as we share the mission and the stories of those lives that we’re helping" TULSA WORLD.
Bailey prior to the race wrote the NASCAR fan base "is a perfect target for the Folds of Honor, which provides educational scholarships for families of killed or disabled military members while on active duty." Rooney: "Ultimately, it fits our demographic. Just the patriotic nature of NASCAR, the fanaticism and to get to create what I hope to be is the most patriotic race in NASCAR history" TULSA WORLD.
