In October 2015, KIOTI Tractor hit the road, raffling off Adkins’ personal KIOTI DK65 with attached front end loader and backhoe to benefit the organization. KIOTI delivered the tractor to the winner, Doyle Myers of Shepherd, Texas, in early March.

“I was in disbelief when I found out I won,” said Myers. “I have 55-acres of timberland and can’t wait to put this tractor to good use. I’ve also been a supporter of Wounded Warrior Project for many years and appreciate the contributions made by Trace Adkins and KIOTI Tractor to help heroes on the road to recovery.”

For a $25 donation to Wounded Warrior Project, fans entered for a chance to win Adkins’ own autographed KIOTI DK65 tractor and attached front end loader and backhoe. The promotion closed on October 19, 2016.

KIOTI presented the $32,220 check at their annual dealer meeting in November of 2016. Former Army Staff Sergeant Christopher Gordon accepted the check on behalf of the Wounded Warrior Project.
