ROCKWALL, Texas (October 16, 2014) – Drivers, teams, and fans of the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by MAVTV American Real and the Devil’s Bowl Speedway met at the Buffalo Creek Golf Club on Thursday for the 8th annual Steve King Charity Golf Tournament.

Eighteen holes of Golf, followed by a charity auction, the day’s events brought in $20,263 for the Steve King Foundation. Bringing a score of 55 to the judges table, the four man team of David Hatfield, Mark Moore, Josh Ryan, and Mike Jones claimed the win in this year’s tournament.


The high bid item of the night was a custom 50cc Yamaha Scooter, which fetched $5,500 thanks to Tom Lorenz. As the auction came to a close, Tony Bruce, Sr. donated $500 with the challenge for everyone to simply donate what they could before leaving. His donation was quickly matched three times over.


Addressing the room, Danette King highlighted recent works of the Steve King Foundation with 13 families helped over the past 12 months.


Since its inception, the Steve King Foundation has reached out to over 120 families in the United States, Canada, and Australia. With the monies collected at this year’s event, the total money raised by the foundation to assist injured drivers and their families now stands at $209,093.
