The ride raised money for a scholarship that will be made in Sheldon’s name for a student in basic law enforcement training at Mitchell Community College.

“Anyone who plans on serving Iredell County and has a financial need will have an opportunity at this scholarship,” organizer Lauren Ciccone said.

A number of drivers in Saturday’s NASCAR All-Star race also paid a special tribute to Sheldon by placing a decal on their cars.

Driver Kyle Busch, whose team is based in Mooresville, hosted a pair of Mooresville police K-9 officers during Friday night’s truck race.
