Aside from his busy racing schedule, Gase finds time to support numerous charities and non-profit organizations, such as Sharing Hope.
Gase has a personal connection that links his desire to help those in need. When Joey was 18 he tragically lost his mother, Mary, to a sudden brain aneurysm. Gase developed a desire and passion for educating others on the need of organ, tissue, and eye donation and honoring all of those affected by it.
