FERDINAND, IN (June 6, 2017) - Best Home Furnishings held "Joey Gase Day" at their Ferdinand headquarters on Tuesday, June 6, 2017. The NASCAR driver of the #23 Best Home Furnishings Toyota Camry started the day by touring the facilities.
“It’s cool to see how Best takes care of employees and how much people like working here,” he said of the visit. “It’s neat to see how fast they work. I see a lot of signs about speed and working fast, and that works pretty well with what I do.”
Many of the employees had the opportunity to stop their task at hand and meet Gase. Several more got their pictures with him and signed autographs.
That evening a public meet and greet with Gase was held. Several hundred people stopped by to receive racing giveaways, have their picture taken with Gase, as well as the official show-car. A virtual reality racing game was set up, and visitors could drive any race track in the country, driving Joey's car of course.
Memorial Hospital, along with the Indiana Organ Procurement Organization, joined in the public event by offering giveaways to those who signed up to be organ donors. Gase is a big ambassador of Donate Life and will frequently drive with this name on his car.
