Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America Contest

***Win an autographed Kyle Petty Charity
Ride Across America Event Hat***

Kyle Richard Petty is an American NASCAR driver and racing analyst. He drove the #45 Wells Fargo/Marathon Petroleum Company Dodge Charger for Petty Enterprises. He also appeared in the 1983 Burt Reynolds movie Stroker Ace.

***** Congratulations to our winner - Miranda Ward!

Bikers from across the state and country pulled out of the zMAX Dragway in Charlotte for the eighth annual Ride to Victory. The fundraiser benefits the Victory Junction Gang Camp.


Kyle Petty said while the rides are a lot of fun, they pale in comparison to the end result that they achieve. "These are people who give up a Sunday afternoon to come out and ride motorcycles and hopefully we'll be able to send a bunch of kids to camp," said Petty.

Here are the results from the event:
  • Over 500 riders and approximately 400 motorcycles participated in the 8th Annual Ride to Victory: A Tribute to Click Baldwin;
  • It was a beautiful sunny day and they raised $20,000, enough money to send eight kids to Victory Junction for a summer session;
  • Celebrities in attendance included: Kyle Petty, Harry Gant, Waddell Wilson, Max Papis, Doug Herbert, Eddie Gossage of Texas Motor Speedway & Robert D. Raiford of the John Boy & Billy Show;
  • NASCAR Dads in attendance: Tom Logano, Gary Johnson and Chris Bowyer;
  • The entire ride was led by police escort and riders took a trip down the zMAX Dragway and participated in a "classic" Charity Ride pit stop at Pilot Flying J in Kannapolis, N.C.;
  • They performed a "Victory Lap" around Victory Junction to the cheers of Victory Junction campers and staff;
  • The ride ended with a Songwriters' Jam and raffle at Kyle Petty's Adaumont Farms. The lucky winners were able to choose from an autographed Richard Petty car hood, a signed Brian Vickers helmet, designer Harley-Davidson items, among many others;
  • Songwriters' performed famous country music hits recorded by Garth Brooks, Sara Evans, Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood, Kenny Chesney and many more.


What can you do to prepare for next year’s event:

  1. You can begin forming Dream Teams and raising money for the Ride Across America. If the team is along the route for the 2011 Ride they have the opportunity to present their check to Kyle Petty in person (route cannot be guaranteed yet) .
  2. You can help raising awareness during the ride’s down time. Check out their Facebook and Twitter pages daily.
  3. Supporting Victory Junction in their events. Papa Johns is running a promotion for VJ and Goody's will donate money to VJ through the Pick-A-Powder Campaign with Richard Petty.

I learned that you can recycle your old phones for charity. I have several and will do this! We did participate in the charity run in 1999 on our way to get married in Myrtle Beach. We were lucky enough to meet both the boys and watch them tear up the property with gold carts! What a wonderful thing your family is doing!

I learned that there are a lot of current and fromer NASCAR drivers as members of the VJG Camp Support crew.

Kyle would know me as the Stalkers daughter, as my mother is a huge fan of Kyle, and adores Patty. We have gone to many rides and have met famous people like tony Stewart, Kyle, and Patty Petty. I have been to many differnt rides and am glad to say that we have donated over $100 each year that we go. I have gone to all of them except 2008, 2009, and 2010, for the route has not been close enough. I learned on that welcoming website that even though Adam is no longer with us in phsyical appearnce, he is with us in our hearts. He is the main reason this camp was made and i pray everyday that more and more people can go to this wondeful camp.

someones baby girl said...

Hi, i would like to say that it would be amazing for the Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America, to travel through Sundance/ Moorcroft/Wright And Upton, Wyoming. they are all small towns but they havent been here before and i think it would be cool if they came here and saw the wonderful woods/ farms and many more that belong here in the northeast part of Wyoming.
