Allmendinger Hits The Links for Grin Kids Insignia HD/Best Buy Hood Finds a New Home

25 August 2010 (Charlotte, NC)--NASCAR Sprint Cup racer AJ Allmendinger put a pair of his favorite things into play as he mixed golf and charity this week. AJ hit the links at Birkdale Golf Course in Huntersville, North Carolina, as part of the Grin Kids Charity and Celebrity Open to benefit ACE & TJ's Grin Kids, a non-profit 501c3 charity created by morning show personalities ACE & TJ in Charlotte.

The event was first staged in 2003 and is sponsored by Best Buy as well as enjoying support from Galway Hooker and a host of other partners. Best Buy had a physical presence at the event as well, as the Insignia HD/Best Buy-liveried hood that AJ carried to fourth at Watkins Glen International earlier this month was auctioned as part of the various fund-raising activity taking place.

"It was a fun afternoon and I'm happy to be here and help support the Grin Kids," said AJ. "This was just another example of something cool that Best Buy is involved with, and I was glad to be involved. How could you not want to help support something called 'Grin Kids?' I've been really impressed with what ACE and T.J. have done through the years and of course it makes it even better that it's something I really enjoy doing like playing golf."
