A portion of the proceeds from each ticket sold will benefit the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer, a charity chosen by Predator Performance/50+ Racing.
Johnson, a native of England who now resides in Sarasota, has been the lead singer for AC/DC since 1980. The iconic band is one of the highest grossing music groups of all time and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003. A racing enthusiast, Johnson competes in vintage races throughout the U.S. when his touring schedule allows.
DeFoor, a Chattanooga, Tenn., businessman, owns and races numerous high-horsepower Can-Am race cars and BMW GT cars.
