CONCORD, N.C. – A golf tournament benefitting injured race car driver Kevin Swindell has been organized and will take place next month in the greater Charlotte area.

The #BulldogStrong Golf Tournament benefitting Kevin Swindell will be held at Rocky River Golf Club in Concord, N.C. on Tuesday, Oct. 6.

The benefit is designed to help raise donations for the long-term medical care and recovery of driver, Kevin Swindell, who sustained serious spinal cord and back injuries as a result of a racing accident on Aug. 13. After two major back surgeries and eight days in an Iowa hospital, Kevin was transported to Frazier Rehab Institute in Louisville, Ky. where he’s currently being treated for a spinal cord injury, which has left him without mobility below the waist.

There is a long road ahead for Kevin and donations from the Golf Tournament will help ease the burden of the medical expenses for Kevin and his family allowing him to focus solely on his health.

The #BulldogStrong Golf Tournament, which is open to the public, will be held at the Rocky River Golf Club located in Concord, N.C. in correlation with the Oct. 10 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The event, which will be held days prior to the Charlotte Cup race, will draw support from many top racing industry professionals and drivers.

The #BulldogStrong Golf Tournament benefitting Kevin Swindell is a collaborative effort and will be run through the Women’s Auxiliary of Motorsports (WAM), an Official Charity of NASCAR.
