When Joey Gase and the No.32 JT Concrete/TMNT Rocksteady team hit the track this weekend at Chicagoland Speedway they will be part of an epic battle in #TeamTurtle vs. #TeamFoot.
A part of villain Shredder's Foot Clan, Rocksteady is a mutant white Rhinoceros. Gase joins #TeamFoot and becomes the final piece of the battle between good vs. evil over the course of the Teenage Mutant Turtles weekend.
Joining Gase and Rocksteady this weekend on the No.32 Ford Fusion will be JT Concrete, Carolina Cooker, Highway Equipment Company, Clubfoot Solutions, along with paying tribute to a young die hard Turtles fan, Preston.
Preston was an amazing little boy growing up and a serious Ninja Turtles fan! He had the swords, sticks, nun chucks, masks, and even a turtle shell! He was always fighting crime. Preston also battled seizures and spent a lot of time in children's hospitals trying to get his medications right to help control the seizures. He never let the seizures slow him down. Finally, Preston and his doctors were able to get the seizures under control, and he was doing great.
But on June 24th, 2016 that all changed. Preston was playing outside with some friends and was standing next to a kiddie pool. Preston suffered a serious seizure and fell face first into the pool, causing him to start drowning before anyone realized what was happening.
CPR was started immediately, and Preston was taken to a hospital in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and then airlifted to a Children's Hospital in Jackson, Mississippi. After being sedated and on ventilator's doctors pronounced Preston brain dead. Preston became an organ donor that day and was a true super hero that we all should admire.
