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.
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.
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.
