Back in November, we told you that AC/DC‘s Brian Johnson — a long time car racing enthusiast — was prepping for the Rolex 24 At Daytona, which he planned to parlay into an opportunity to help raise money for kids with cancer.

Well, the endurance race took place this past weekend, and Johnson and his team deserve props: in a field of 59 competitors, they came in a respectable 32nd place.

The singer and three other drivers helmed the No. 50 Riley-BMW Dayton Prototype during the 50th anniversary of the race, held Jan. 28-29 at the Daytona International Speedway in Florida.

During their run, fans were able to donate to the Highway to Help campaign, which benefited the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer, via a special text message or on the charity’s website.

No word yet on how much was raised, but Jim Osborn, co-founder of the Hatcher Foundation, called Highway to Help a “huge success,” adding, “The awareness and funds raised through this campaign would not have been possible without the generosity of Brian Johnson and the entire Fifty Plus Racing team and we are extremely grateful to have the support of the racing community and AC/DC fans all over the world.”
