Matt Kaulig receives the 2022 Steve Byrnes Going The Distance Award at Dover Motor Speedway.

The “Going the Distance” award was established in 2015 to honor and remember Steve Byrnes. Steve was a pit reporter on Fox’s NASCAR coverage from its inaugural season in 2001, until his passing in 2015.

Steve’s son, Bryson, now presents the award each year, and keeps his father’s legacy alive!

This year’s “Going the Distance” award winner is Matt Kaulig.  Matt founded LeafFilter and Kaulig Racing.  Both have been hugely successful do to his passion, energy and commitment. And Matt carries those same qualities to his philanthropic work.  He and his wife Lisa founded the Kaulig Giving which supports numerous charities around his hometown of Hudson, Ohio, but he also has been an incredibly generous supporter of Autism Delaware.
