MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

Folks in Moultrie are excited their Colquitt County Packers are going for a second straight state football championship, and now they can support the Pack while fueling their cars. 

The Raceway on Veterans Parkway is donating money to the Colquitt County Athletics Department every time a customer uses this decorated Packer spirit pump.

One penny per gallon goes to support school sports.

Customers think it's a great idea.

"Suhail Saqi is the actual owner and operator of the raceway here in Moultrie," said Rocky Hancock. "He wanted to do something to actually be able to give back. We just had a lady who waited a good 15 minutes for a semi to get through filling up and she waited all that time just so she could fill up here because she is a very good supporter of the Packers."

In just a couple of weeks, the pump delivered 10 thousand gallons which translates to $100 for the Packers.
