Final totals have come in from the fourth annual Buxton Big Time Bash in Austin, and this year’s bash held the Thursday night before the United States Grand Prix at Circuit of The Americas netted more than $40,000 for charity.

The Bash, organized by NBCSN pit reporter and insider Will Buxton  raises money for Meals on Wheels and More of Austin, and this year, additionally, for the Wilson Children’s Fund, paying tribute to the late Justin Wilson.

This brings the overall total to more than $60,000 raised over the four years.

Between a stacked, deep queue to get into the Rattle Inn and a host of incredible items available, generously donated from the Formula 1 community, it was a banner night for the Bash.

The F1 on NBC Sports broadcast crew of Leigh Diffey, David Hobbs and Steve Matchett joined Buxton on stage.

Drivers included Felipe Massa and Alex Lynn of Williams, Ferrari reserve (and 2016 Haas F1 driver) Esteban Gutierrez, Manor’s Alexander Rossi, and IndyCar part-time drivers and European series veterans, Conor Daly and Luca Filippi.
