Walk with Darrell Gwynn and Friends for a Great Cause at Pro Hydro Clean Last Lap

Friday, April 1, 2022

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Walk down the quarter-mile drag strip alongside world champion and Hall of Fame drag racer Darrell Gwynn and Friends for a great cause at the Pro Hydro Clean Last Lap at Palm Beach International Raceway on Saturday, April 23.

80a

Talk with racing legends, share great memories of PBIR and help others through your donations to the Darrell Gwynn Quality of Life Chapter of The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis.

In 1990, Gwynn suffered a devastating racing accident that changed his life drastically and caused his paralysis. He has worked tirelessly in the years since, most recently putting his energy and competitive zeal in a fundraising campaign called “Put the Brakes on Paralysis.”

He hopes the track walk at the Pro Hydro Clean Last Lap will inspire those and also stir good memories of Palm Beach International Raceway, a place he holds close to his heart.

“Nobody is more somber about PBIR closing than me and my family,” Gwynn said. “My dad and I were there the first day it was opened. We have a long history of racing there together. I’ve been going since I was a kid.”

Gwynn added, “There’s nothing we can do about the track closing. Let’s try to reflect on the great memories of the track. Let’s do that by walking the quarter-mile with Legends, Don Garlits, Jerry Gwynn, Paul Smith, Joe Amato, Johnny Gray, and others as we parade everyone down the race track.”

Gwynn encourages the fans to not only walk with the legends but ask questions about the track that has been so synonymous with South Florida racing. Only individuals with wristbands can participate in the track walk. Wristbands can be purchased at the Darrell Gwynn merchandise trailer all day long for a $20 donation to the Darrell Gwynn Chapter of The Buoniconti Fund. These funds will support Darrell’s quality of life programs and cutting-edge paralysis research.
