NASCAR Weekend Kicks Off With NOS Energy Drink Celebrity Go-Kart Challenge at K1 Speed
NOS Energy Drink held a Celebrity Go-Kart Challenge at K1 Speed in Ontario, CA to kick-off NASCAR weekend. This special charity event benefitted the “Kyle Busch Foundation.” NASCAR driver Kyle Busch and Formula DRIFT driver Chris Forsberg hosted the event racing against celebrities that included actor William Fichtner, model/actress Kimberley Leemans, MMA fighter Josh Barnett and Chef Holli winner of “Hell’s Kitchen.” Kyle Busch came out on top with the fastest lap time of the day, but the real winner was the Kyle Busch Foundation who received a check for $10,000 from NOS Energy Drink.
The event began with 30 drivers given driving instructions by Kyle Busch and Chris Forsberg to better prepare them before getting on the track. The 30 drivers were broken up into groups of 10 and given a 10 lap practice session followed by a 10 lap qualifying session. The top 3 drivers from each group were selected based on fastest lap time and would advance into the main event versus Kyle Busch and Chris Forsberg.
The main event was very exciting with Kyle Busch finishing in 1st Place, professional driver Joon Maeng in 2nd place with Zac Bogner rounding out the podium in 3rd place. Following the main event, NOS Energy Drink presented Kyle Busch a check for $10,000 to benefit the Kyle Busch Foundation. Spectators were not only treated to some exciting racing but also had the chance to play video games in the NOS Energy Gaming area.
