LAS VEGAS (March 3, 2024) – While the Toyota Camry race cars were lining up for the NASCAR Cup Series Race on Sunday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, another Toyota Camry took top honors in changing the life of a Las Vegas resident and his adopted family.

That 2019 Toyota Camry, donated by GEICO and refurbished by Caliber Collision, was presented to Atanasio Moku during the pre-race festivities of the Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. It will help him continue his path to independence, allow him to work more hours and take care of his extended family – thanks to the National Auto Body Council Recycled Rides® program along with GEICO and Caliber Collision.

“This is amazing—I’m shocked,” said Moku, the recipient of the fully refurbished 2019 Toyota Camry. “This means everything to my family. We’ve been taking the bus and getting rides, and this will change all of that.  I can work more now and better provide for my niece and nephew.  What a great day and a great blessing!”

Moku took over care of his sister’s two teenage children, as she was unable to take care of them herself. He has brought the family from homelessness to a secure living situation. The gifted car will enable Moku to get the children to school and appointments and himself to work. It will be key to the children’s recovery from trauma to a safe and happy lifestyle. 

“The focus of the NABC® is to change and save lives, and through its efforts, the NABC Recycled Rides® program has presented thousands of vehicles to people in need,” said Deborah Robinson, executive director of NABC. “The entire collision industry has worked together to make this possible.” 

NABC Recycled Rides® is a unique program in which businesses representing all facets of the collision repair industry team up to repair and donate vehicles to individuals and families in need of reliable transportation. Since the inception of the NABC Recycled Rides® program in 2007, members of the National Auto Body Council have donated more than 3,300 vehicles valued at some $47 million.

Additional partners in the NABC Recycled Rides® program include Cars for Charity, Advanced Remarketing Services, Copart and Enterprise.


The National Auto Body Council® is the premier organization of collision industry partners dedicated to strategic networking opportunities that positively change lives in the communities we serve. The collaborative membership of the National Auto Body Council® has gifted more than 3,300 vehicles and provided extrication opportunities for some 5,500 First Responders in communities around the country through NABC Recycled Rides®, NABC First Responder Emergency Extrication (F.R.E.E.™) and the NABC® Community Impact program. That effort equates to a 4:1 ROI in dollar value delivered from NABC® membership dollars. The NABC Changing and Saving Lives Foundation, a 501c3 organization, is committed to the goal of driving change for veterans, military members, first responders and families in need, while harnessing the power of the collective membership of the collision repair industry to positively impact communities where we live and work. As demand for NABC® programs like NABC Recycled Rides® and NABC F.R.E.E.™ grows, so do the needs for resources to manage these important programs. Being able to pursue grants, gifts and donations allows NABC to expand these programs to serve those in need and help communities where we live and work. For more information, visit
