Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America

Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America

Follow Their East Coast Trek Via Social Media

Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across AmericaFor the first time in more than seven years, two hundred and twenty-five (225) riders adventure on the East Coast on the Ride’s 24th Anniversary trek raising money to send kids to Victory Junction.

Former NASCAR driver and NBC Sports racing analyst Kyle Petty will lead his band of merry men and women down the East Coast; starting in Portland, Maine, on May 5 and ending in Greensboro, North Carolina, on May 11.

Dubbed by Petty as “The Americana Tour,” this year’s route features many bucket list stops, sights and activities for participants – including victory laps at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Pocono Raceway, the hallowed grounds of Woodstock, tours of the Martin Guitar Factory, Harley- Davidson Factory and Petty Museum, a visit to Manheim Pennsylvania — the world’s largest auto auction, and so much more. But perhaps the most exciting part of the 2018 Ride will be its homecoming and finale celebration at Victory Junction.

“It’s been more than seven years since we’ve been to the East Coast. We heard the requests of both our riders and fans, and we’re excited to deliver a special route full of incredible surprises and experiences, like riding through Shenandoah National Park – which will be the 13th national park visited on the Ride,” said Petty. “We’ll also be ending the Ride at Camp this year, which always brings everything full circle. Year after year, all the miles we travel are for the kids at Victory Junction. They’re the reason we ride.”

If you can not participate as a spectators along the 2018 route, you can keep up with this adventure via the social media post below which will be updated daily.
