Doyle Lawson and Kyle Petty

Doyle Lawson, Kathy Hendrix, Kyle Petty, Lee Hendrix and Bobby Wright at the trophy ceremony for the Doyle Lawson Golf Scramble.If you ever doubted that bluegrass music and NASCAR share more than just a fan base, this story may change your mind.

We received a note the other day from Lee Hendrix, who was on the winning team at the Doyle Lawson Golf Scramble, held on the Thursday (5/10) before the 27th Annual Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver Bluegrass Music Festival in Denton, NC.

I played in Doyle Lawson’s golf scramble this past Thursday. The night before the scramble and Doyle’s festival in Denton NC, DL&Q did a benefit performance for Kyle Petty’s Victory Junction Youth Camp for children with serious illnesses or chronic medical conditions.

Doyle invited Kyle to play in the scramble the next day and he joined us, was on my team, and we won 1st place. Doyle’s team finished second, just one stroke behind.

Kyle really enjoyed himself and talked about how much he loves bluegrass music. A good time was had by all.

Two really class people…Doyle Lawson and Kyle Petty!
