The total sale amount for this no-reserve auction, including the BaT buyer’s fee, will be donated to The Piston Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that will use 100 percent of the funds to help young technicians build rewarding careers in the collector car industry by funding programs in the skilled trades.

“As a car collector I’m excited to help create an opportunity that will help educate the next generation of restorers,” said Joy, a race-car driver and collector whose broadcasting career spans more than 50 years. “As a broadcaster, I’m excited to show fans what we do and how our massive production all comes together. So, bid often for a great time and a worthy cause!” 

“What a great once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a race fan to see what goes on behind the scenes at a NASCAR race,” said Jeff Mason, President and COO of The Piston Foundation. “You cannot buy this experience of meeting NASCAR champions and seeing the challenges it takes to produce a live TV show. Plus, with all the proceeds going to support skilled-trade technicians, it can only be a win-win situation.

 The Piston Foundation’s mission is to help more young people become classic car technicians. In 2023 BaT’s charity auction program helped raise $243,000 for Piston’s Cars for Piston Scholar’s initiative, with the sales of four donated vehicles – enough for more than 40 scholarships, 23 of which were awarded last year. Ten inaugural scholarships were awarded in 2022, with funds raised through private donations.
