HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) -- Former NASCAR driver Max Papis and his team won the annual, charity Hot Rods & Reels Fishing Tournament at the infield lake at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Papis and his teammates caught three fish totaling 4.43 pounds Friday. Papis caught the biggest one, which weighed 2.15 pounds.
Additional participants included team owner Richard Childress, Bobby Allison, Ryan Blaney, Joey Coulter, Michael McDowell, Ryan Newman, David Ragan, Tony Stewart and Patrick Staropoli.
The event raised money for Darrell Gwynn Chapter of The Buoniconti Fund and paralysis research at The Miami Project.
Gwynn, a former NHRA driver partially paralyzed following a crash nearly three decades ago, donated a custom wheelchair to 19-year-old Aaron Willis, who was paralyzed four years ago during a drive-by shooting.
