Eleven-Year-Old Supports Victory Junction with Hand Drawn RPM Bubba Poster

Eleven-Year-Old Supports Victory Junction with Hand Drawn RPM Bubba Poster

Wallace's #43 Darlington Poster Honoring Adam Petty Auction


Eleven-Year-Old Supports Victory Junction with Hand Drawn RPM Bubba Wallace Poster #NASCAR


Mitchell is an eleven-year-old who loves NASCAR, everything Petty, and Bubba Wallace! He goes to lots of NASCAR races with his dad and always make posters to show support for his driver, Bubba Wallace, driver of the #43 and his team, Richard Petty Motorsports

For the Darlington race, Bubba drove a throwback scheme, designed to honor Adam Petty's win in the ARCA series, and the sponsor of the car, Victory Junction Camp. Mitchell made the poster in honor of Adam Petty, his legacy, and the camp.


That poster (pictured above) is autographed by Bubba Wallace, Kyle Petty, and the King of NASCAR - Richard Petty.  You can bid on this NASCAR artwork with all the proceeds of the sale to benefit Victory Junction Gang Camp Inc.


Eleven-Year-Old Supports Victory Junction with Hand Drawn RPM Bubba Wallace Poster #NASCAR

Interview of Mitchell by his Father

1) Mitchell, why did you make this poster?

Answer: To support Bubba Wallace and Richard Petty Motorsports. In memory of and honor of Adam Petty because of how good of a person he was. I am just happy Bubba got to drive that car.

2) Mitchell, why do you want to auction this poster off?

Answer: Because that is what Adam Petty would do. He would donate money to Victory Junction and he would do everything he could to make kids smile and I think something I dedicated to him should help a camp he wanted to make. I am just happy that my poster is gonna go for money that I can donate to get somebody to go to camp. My goal is to try to do the same thing that Adam would do. I want to be able to help that camp. I want to be a counselor when I turn 18. I want to help as much as I can to honor Adam Petty.

3) Why is Victory Junction special to you?

Answer: Because it is Adam Petty's legacy. It is what he wanted to make. I have been to Victory Junction Camp twice (not as a camper). When I was there I felt proud to be a 43 fan and to know about Adam Petty. It is a special place, just for kids who might not be able to go to camps like 4h or other camps I can go to.

4) What makes Adam Petty special to you?

Answer: He was just a great person. Everything he did for everybody was remarkable. There are not many people like that and I think that's pretty awesome.

Darlington marked Mitchell's 7th NASCAR race of the season and his 7th #43 poster this season. He makes them all for Bubba Wallace and the #43 team. He wanted to give the poster to the camp, but I made the suggestion that he auction it off for proceeds to go to Victory Junction Camp. He jumped all over it. He is so excited! His goal is no small one. He wants to raise enough money to send one camper to camp ($1,500-$2,500!). While I understand he likely won't reach his goal, I hope we can raise some funds for Victory Junction and some exposure as well! Mitchell's Dad

Adam Petty

Adam Kyler Petty was an American professional racing driver. He was the fourth generation from the Petty family to drive in races in the highest division of NASCAR racing. He is believed to be the first fourth-generation athlete in all of modern American professional sports.

Tragically, on May 12, 2000, in a practice session for the Busch 200 race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Petty's throttle stuck wide open going into turn three, causing the car to hit the outside wall virtually head on. Petty was killed instantly when he suffered a basilar skull fracture. He was just nineteen years old.

The Petty family founded Victory Junction in honor of their son and to honor his dream of helping children.


100% of the sale of this item will benefit Victory Junction Gang Camp Inc.

Victory Junction enriches the lives of children with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses by providing life-changing camp experiences that are exciting, fun and empowering; all in a medically-safe environment at no cost to the camper or their family. Located in the hills of Randleman, North Carolina, Victory Junction is spread across 84 acres, allowing children to do what they do best - be kids, play, imagine, make friends and enjoy the adventures and experiences of camp life.

Kurt Busch's Ex-Girlfriend Get Prison Time for Fraud and Tax Evasion

Kurt Busch's Ex-Girlfriend Get Prison Time for Fraud and Tax Evasion

Karma for Busch and Driscoll?

Couple In Happier Times (2013)
Remember back in 2015, when NASCAR’s 2004 Cup Champion, Kurt Busch was indefinitely suspended by NASCAR after a Delaware family court cited "more likely than not" that Busch had abused his ex-girlfriend Patricia Driscoll?

Driscoll had made the domestic violence accusation after the couple split up. She had used Busch's personal entrance code to let herself into Busch’s motor coach at Dover International Speedway. She alleged that the driver strangled her and slammed her head against the wall of his trailer three times.

Kurt Busch applied for reinstatement ten days after the Daytona 500, and began his reinstatement program. On March 11, 2015, NASCAR lifted Busch's indefinite suspension after prosecutors in Delaware determined there was not enough evidence to bring a criminal case against Busch, making him eligible to compete again. Additionally, Busch was granted a waiver by NASCAR, making him still eligible for the Chase if he won a race between then and the autumn Richmond event. Despite missing three races, Kurt finished eighth in the point standings with two wins (Fontana & Fort Worth)

In November 2018, Patricia Driscoll, age 41, was found guilty of using her position as the executive director of the Armed Forces Foundation to steal from the nonprofit and donors while simultaneously hiding her salary from the IRS and the public.

On September 13th, she was sentenced to **twelve (12) months and one day in prison. She will also serve 36 months of supervised release, a period of home confinement, 360 hours of community service and pay $154,289 in restitution and $81,779 in a money judgment forfeiture.

A jury found that Driscoll was using the foundation’s money for personal use and to pay her for-profit business expenses.

Previously, Ms. Driscoll stated about the abuse claim, “I’m telling you, it’s better to take the beating that day and keep your mouth shut than it is for anything that has happened after . . . . . . It is not worth it at all. I should have stayed quiet.” 
In a statement, Driscoll’s attorneys said: “The jury did not get it right — Patricia Driscoll is innocent. We are very disappointed by the verdict.” The statement, from attorney Brian W. Stolarz, added: “We will appeal. This is not the final chapter to this story.”

NASCAR Race Mom has no idea if Ms. Driscoll’s allegations against Kurt Busch held merit – but ***karma has seemingly made an appearance in this NASCAR drama.

**Twelve Months and a Day Sentence - For anything up to a year, the convicted serves county time at day for day. Which means you must do almost 6 months in custody. However, after a year you go to prison which means you have “good time” further reducing your sentence.

***Karma - the sum of a person's actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences.

Busch & Bell Kick Off the Race Weekend with a Pep Rally

Kurt Busch, Christopher Bell Kick Off Bank of America ROVAL™ 400 Week with Pep Rally in Uptown Charlotte
Before Kurt Busch burns rubber in Sunday's Bank of America ROVAL™ 400 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, the veteran driver - and defending ROVAL™ pole winner - joined NASCAR Xfinity Series championship favorite Christopher Bell in cooling off fans at Bank of America Plaza on Tuesday.

Kurt Busch and Christopher Bell served Rocky ROVAL™ ice cream to fans at a Bank of America ROVAL™ 400 pep rally on Tuesday in Uptown Charlotte.
Busch & Bell Serve Rocky ROVAL™ Ice Cream
While previewing the weekend's ROVAL™ festivities, Busch and Bell served fans cups of Rocky ROVAL™ ice cream - salted caramel ice cream with chocolate chunks, marshmallow swirls and candied bacon pieces. Additionally, the Johnson C. Smith University International Institution of Sound (I.I.O.S.) Marching Band performed on Bank of America Plaza.

The event gave both drivers a chance to discuss a difficult task ahead of them: for Busch, winning the Bank of America ROVAL™ 400 and for Bell, winning Saturday's Drive for the Cure 250 presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina.


Busch said the 17-turn, 2.28-mile ROVAL™ - replete with a new backstretch chicane - offers a unique challenge to drivers, crews and cars.

"It's great to feel that hometown atmosphere of a pep rally with the excitement of a Playoff race, a cutoff race and the second time we're racing on the ROVAL™," Busch said. "Charlotte is doing a great job of promoting it and embracing this cutoff race. You can feel the energy. You can feel the excitement. Race day is going to be big this year.

"It's still about executing as a team and trying to stay out of trouble. The backstretch chicane will be tight. It'll be like the frontstretch one now. You've really got to slow down. There's an option to use first gear. Most of the time it'll be second gear but it just depends on who gets bottled up in front of you. It's going to be wild. … Everybody's anticipating having a better run this year."

Bell said the ROVAL™ stands out for more than the tight chicanes, sweeping turns and high-speed corners.

"The ROVAL™ is one of the most exciting tracks that we have, especially in the Playoffs and really anywhere," he added. "Last year, when we went to the ROVAL™ I was totally shocked at how nice the venue was. Typically whenever you go to road courses, it's more of an out-in-the-woods race track, so to speak.

"Charlotte, man, whenever you're rolling around there, it almost looks like a Formula 1 venue, just because of all the paint outside the race track. They do a great job of preparing the venue to make it a huge event."


Greg Walter, the executive vice president and general manager of Charlotte Motor Speedway, said that a turnout featuring fans from all 50 states and 20 foreign countries is a credit to the speedway's culture of being an innovator.

"We want to continue to add to it," Walter said. "From a road course racer's standpoint, they call it a technical course. This course challenges a driver in a way they probably haven't been challenged before. … This community embraces big. Our partners like Bank of America, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina, and Bojangles', they all understand the significance of this race. It makes for a worldwide showcase of what we do here."

Ty Dillon with Crew Chief Matt Borland
Matt Borland (Germain Racing), crew chief of the No. 13 entry driven by Ty Dillon in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series was indefinitely suspended for a violation of the sanctioning body’s Substance Abuse Policy in August.

At that time, Borland said in a statement released by the team that he was notified of a positive test for the banned substance **DMAA (2-amino-5-methylhexanamine). He and team owner Bob Germain Jr. said a derivative of the substance was an ingredient in a diet coffee that he had been using regularly for the last six months.

Borland successfully completed NASCAR’s ‘Road to Recovery’ program.

Crew Chief Clifford Turner worked with Jeff Green in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for twelve races before his suspension on June 18th 2019. He violated NASCAR Infraction Sections 12.1 & 19 – Behavioral.

Both men have been reinstated. Welcome back boys.

** 1,3-dimethylamylamine (DMAA) is a synthetically produced neural stimulant used as a key ingredient in dietary supplements to improve athletic performance and provide increased energy. In terms of chemical structure, it is similar to Ephedrine. ...

Young NASCAR Fans are the Winners

Young NASCAR Fans are the Winners
By allowing children in the garage and younger teens behind the wheel, it’s clear NASCAR wants a youth movement. In fact, kids thirteen and under are just ten dollars ($10) with a paying adult in most grandstands for Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races and FREE with a paying adult to Qualifying and Xfinity series races.

This weekend race winners augmented that dedication to the younger fans.

Kyle to Kyle

Kyle Petty with his father Richard, the King of NASCAR
Just in case you did not know, Kyle Petty is an ex-NASCAR driver, now sports analyst for NBC. He can boast of eight Cup wins during his almost thirty-year career.

Therefore, NASCAR Race Mom was very pleaseD when this expert expressed his opinion regard Kyle Busch’s shenanigans and negative behavior after a recent racing incident.

Look I know he is mad, and you can defend him all you want to, because I think he is one of the greatest race car driver ever to set his rear-end in a race car and hang on to a steering wheel. I think history will show that; he shows that weekly . . . . .but at the same time, I think that carrying and doing interviews, like we just saw and we saw last week is a disrespect to the sport, is a disrespect to the media and is a disrespect to the fans. I’m sorry, but you know that when you crash, somebody is going to be standing in your face with a microphone. Its been that way since the time you got into a truck and went to Xfinity and got in Cup. Get over yourself, get over it and get in the car and do your job . . . . you got sponsors, you got fans. There’re little kids out there that look up to you and you’re an example, whether you want to be or not.

Kyle Busch has fifty-five Cup wins – definitely bound for the NASCAR Hall of Fame. NRM hopes that he can develop enough to respect the sport that accolades him.

Christopher Bell, driver of the No. 20 Toyota Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing, captured the checkered flag in the Go Bowling 250 NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) Playoff race at Richmond Raceway (Richmond). The victory was the first race of the NXS Playoffs and seventh win of the NXS season, which moves him to the Round of Eight in the NXS Playoffs.

“That one was pretty special. Going ninty-two laps straight here is really difficult,” said Bell. “We were sliding all around. I felt like if I could get to traffic I was going to be in good shape because my car could move around really good.”

With the victory, Bell has now won three of his four career starts at America’s Premier Short Track. He is now tied for third with Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick, and Denny Hamlin with the most wins of active drivers at Richmond.

Bell dominated the Go Bowling 250 leading a career-high 238 of 250 laps and winning by 1.700 seconds over second place finisher Austin Cindric of Team Penske. Cindric won the Go Bowling 250 pole with a lap of almost 119 miles per hour. This was his fourth pole of the 2019 NXS season.

The race featured four lead changes among Bell, Cindric, and Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Brandon Jones, driver of the No. 19 Toyota Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing. Jones just missed out on his fourth straight top-10 result by finishing 11th. Cole Custer, driver of the #00 Go Bowling car for Stewart-Haas Racing, finished third followed by Justin Allgaier and Chase Briscoe to complete the top five.

“I want to say thanks to the fans for coming out,” said Bell. “It’s an honor to run in front of you guys. If you don’t come out, we have no one to race for. Thank you to all the fans for coming out.”

Regular season NXS champion Tyler Reddick finished in tenth place. The rest of the NXS Playoff field finishes included: Noah Gragson in seventh, Michael Annett in ninth, Ryan Sieg in 12th, John Hunter Nemechek in 15th, and Justin Haley in 17th.

Harrison Burton, driver of the No. 18 for Joe Gibbs Racing, earned his third career top-10 finish in his fourth career NXS start.
