DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. (AP) - Clint Bowyer has reeled in another win, with a catch.
It wasn’t a NASCAR race.
Bowyer won his third Hot Rods & Reels charity fishing tournament Friday at Daytona International Speedway. Bowyer and his fishing team of Jeff Smith, Kimberley Meesters and Kelby Waldrip won the tournament by catching three bass with a combined weight of 10.04 pounds.
The fishing tournament pairs NASCAR drivers with sponsors and race fans for a day of fishing on Lake Lloyd during Speedweeks to benefit the foundation’s Wheelchair Donation Program and Patient Assistance Fund. The Darrell Gwynn Foundation's mission is to provide support for people with paralysis and help prevent spinal cord injuries.
“I just want everyone to know this is my third title,” Bowyer said. “This is such a great event.”
The foundation, on behalf of its donors and supporters, donated a $22,000 custom power wheelchair to 9-year-old Addison Santana of Orlando, Fla.
Jack Thorton of Extreme Super Truck caught the biggest fish of the day, netting a 4.33-pound bass.
