The third annual Tony Stewart Kick-It Cup and second annual Weld Racing Go Kart Spectacular held in association with the Knoxville Nationals this year were an overwhelming success, say event organizers.

Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Kasey Kahne, Kyle Larson drew thousands to Slideways Karting Center for Go Kart Racing, and Knoxville Nationals Drivers and Friends teamed up for a Kickball game at Young’s Park last week.

Organizers tell KNIA/KRLS News that the events raised over $109,000. The charity, Kick-It For Children’s Cancer, is a program of the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation.
