One of the biggest names in auto racing was in Siouxland today.

As part of that campaign fans nominate a charity, which is given $10,000.

Johnson says,

My wife and I really focus on children’s causes and with ice cream the Well’s families’ mindset of family and children and community it just fit so well together. Very proud of the relationship.”
