K1 Speed in Ontario, California played host to a number of participants as the Kyle Busch Foundation staged a celebrity event this past weekend while the NASCAR Nationwide and Sprint Cup series rolled into Auto Club Raceway just down the road in Fontana, California. Kyle teamed up with the 2009 Formula Drift Champion Chris Forsberg and their main sponsor NOS Energy Drink, who donated $10,000 to the charity, it would be an evening of kart racing that would be unforgettable for the lucky few that got to witness this special event.
Joining Kyle and Chris on track were, among others, William Fichtner (Actor-Prison Break), Kimberly Leemans (model), Holli Ugalde (winning chef from Hell’s Kitchen), Josh Barnett (MMA fighter), and Gilbert Gonzalez, Jr. (American Idol). Kyle would go on to win the race in commanding fashion, he followed up this event with a win on Saturday in the Nationwide series race and with a strong run and third place finish in the Sprint Cup Race on Sunday at California Speedway.
Everyone had a great time during this charity event and K1 Speed would like to thank Kyle Busch, Chris Forsberg and NOS for allowing the best indoor kart racing facility in the Inland Empire to host the night’s festivities for the Kyle Busch Foundation.
