The Hot Rods & Reels™ charity fishing tournaments are unforgettable events that allow you to spend quality one-on-one time with your favorite NASCAR drivers. Participants spend approximately two hours with the likes of Tony Stewart, Kyle Petty, Ryan Newman, Martin Truex, Jr., and Ken Schrader on the infield lakes at NASCAR’s two premier events, the Daytona 500 and Ford Championship Weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

All proceeds generated from each tournament go to benefit the Darrell Gwynn Foundation and the Betty Jane France Pediatric Center, Speediatrics.

The Hot Rods & Reels tournament rules are simple: The boat with the heaviest combined largemouth bass or peacock bass weight wins the tournament. However, the individual who reels in the heaviest fish in the tournament has the chance to select from one of 250 envelopes, one of which contains the $1 million grand prize. Each driver/celebrity will be teamed with two guest anglers in their own bass boat featuring an International Game Fish Association (IGFA) recognized guide. Because space is limited people interested in participating should visit www.HotRodsAndReels.com early to register for the event.

Please contact the Foundation if you have any questions regarding the Hot Rods & Reels Fishing Tournaments.
