FOOD BANK AMONG RACE WINNERS

Truex earned his team $304,250 by winning the Toyota/Save Mart 350. David Goodman accepted $20,000 for his team without shifting a gear.

Goodman, executive director of the Redwood Empire Food Bank, received an oversize check from race legend Richard Petty on behalf of Farmland Foods a few hours before Sunday's race. Farmland, which sponsors the No. 43 car owned by Petty and driven by Aric Almirola, gives out money at each stop along the Sprint Cup trail. The company is highly involved in hunger projects.

Goodman noted that a $20,000 donation, supplemented by donated food and volunteered services, will result in $80,000 worth of food by the time it hits the streets today.

"I don't know how many race cars are here," Goodman said. "But I would bet that most of them aren't doing some charitable work here. It's unusual. I think it's as unique as Richard Petty."
