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.
