Kyle Petty Brings Charity Ride To Jackson

Petty

Former NASCAR driver and racing analyst Kyle Petty will lead more than 175 motorcycle riders on a cross-country motorcycle trek to benefit a camp for children with long-term illnesses called Victory Junction.  In the process, Petty will be bringing that group of cyclists including a number of celebrities to Jackson this weekend like NFL Great Herschel Walker.  However, Petty says the ride is being held in the spring this year and many of the celebrities couldn’t get time off at this time for the ride. Petty says the Charity Ride raises funds and awareness for Victory Junction, a camp created to enrich the lives of children with chronic medical conditions. He admits that the ride started selfishly, beginning before the camp was set up as a group of guys that wanted to ride motorcycles across country from California to North Carolina.  He says they raised some funds through the ride and gave it to the children’s hospitals along their route.  Then when his oldest son Adam was killed in an accident, he started the camp in his memory which he calls “a hospital disguised as a camp.” The charity ride leaves Coeur d’Alene, Idaho tomorrow and arrives in Jackson Sunday afternoon.  Petty says the group will stay in town for almost 24 hours to allow time for the group to be tourists here – and he invites anyone interested in having a meet and greet to visit when they see them around town.

  • Today’s a big day for hunters in Wyoming - October 1, 2014
    If you’re really serious about hunting, you’re probably not listening to this. Depending on where you are in the state, the sun’s either up already or sunrise isn’t far away. If you’re a die-hard hunter, you’re probably already hunkered down in a field waiting for the geese to come in, out in the timber trying […]
  • Not all bad news in judge’s decision to relist wolves - September 30, 2014
    U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson handed down a ruling last week that removed wolves from Wyoming control and put them back under the protection of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. That ruling put an end to hunting wolves anywhere in the state, whether they’re in the trophy game area in the northwestern corner […]
