Barrie, Ontario - Danny Benedict has joined forces with Hooters in Barrie, Ontario to bring nostalgia to modern day stock car racing during his run in the Kulwicki Driver Development Program. Alan Kulwicki, the program's namesake, was sponsored by Hooters during his career in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series.
Benedict’s 2019 program has ramped up and is shaping up to be a season full of on-track success and off-track community development.
Driving at Innisfil, Ontario's Sunset Speedway in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series and in the APC United Late Model Tour across Ontario will allow Benedict to share the wealth in each community he visits.
The Kawartha Lakes Native will partner with Hooters in activations in the Barrie area over the summer to raise money for different charities.
Benedict is currently supporting the Make A Wish foundation, where he will be rappelling down the side of Toronto City hall on June 7. He is also supporting “The Shoebox Project” which collects and distributes gift-filled Shoeboxes to women impacted by homelessness in communities across Canada and the United States.
This partnership brings a sense of nostalgia to the table. Alan Kulwicki and Hooters won the 1992 NASCAR Winston Cup Championship together, and Benedict hopes to carry this iconic partnership to another championship in 2019.
