One thing many NASCAR fans, lifelong and new to the sport, love about the drivers in the top tier series of racing is their commitment to helping others through their personal foundations. Through these foundations, drivers are able to meet and make memories for terminally ill children and their families, provide numerous resources to animal shelters, and donate financially and physically to many other noble causes.
