BRISTOL, Tenn. – Gaunt Brothers Racing is auctioning the hood from D.J. Kennington‘s car at Bristol in support of the Humboldt Broncos.
The hood honors the 16 people who lost their lives and the 13 who were injured on April 6 when a bus carrying members of the junior-A Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League team was struck by a semi-trailer as the team was on its way to a playoff game in Nipawin, Saskatchewan, Canada. Kennington is a native of St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada.
On its Facebook page, Gaunt Brothers Racing stated that all proceeds from the auction will go to the Humboldt Broncos charity.
A GoFundMe page for the Humboldt Broncos has raised more than $11.6 million.
Kennington was 30th in the Food City 500 when the race was stopped after 204 laps on Sunday because of rain. The race is scheduled to resume at 1 p.m. ET.
