A beloved member of NASCAR Nation finds himself in a time of need, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. is lending a helping hand.
The 26-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series winner and NASCAR history lover is helping his friend Sam Bass — the first officially licensed artist of NASCAR — in his search for a Type-B kidney transplant. Earnhardt has partnered with the Flood Sisters Kidney Foundation, a non-profit kidney foundation in New York that matches patients in need of living kidney donors for transplant.
Together, they’re hoping to spread awareness for Bass’ need and the many other patients in need of donors. With awareness, donors nationwide can contact the organization to match potential donors with recipients.
Bass has helped design paint schemes and programs for some of the sport’s top stars and marquee events, with his Cup background including paint scheme designs for Junior, Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart and plenty more.
