Nineteen year-old Joey Licata, Jr. is taking the racing world by storm. The rookie recently out-drove some of the nation’s best racers and placed 6th in the “Slick Mist 200” at Daytona International Speedway in February,
Now, Joey’s applying the same passion he has for racing to help his community. He recently announced that he has selected Union Station Homeless Services as his charity of choice.
“As a Los Angeles native, it really feels good to serve the community and to be the voice in auto racing that helps spread the word about the great things that are going on at Union Station.”
Joey will donate a portion of his racing winnings to the non-profit, which helps homeless men, women and children rebuild their lives and end their cycle of homelessness. Joey will also proudly display the Union Station logo on his car.
Look out for Joey sporting the Union Station logo at the upcoming Talladega Superspeedway on April 15.
