Ride to Victory Round-Up

Kyle Petty and more than 300 of his closest friends completed the Ride to Victory last week and the result was a smashing success. Here's the round-up of how much was raised, and how things went:
  • As a result of the Ride to Victory VII, 15 campers will attend Victory Junction for a weeklong summer session free of charge. (The cost for one camper to attend for a week session is about $2,500).

  • Approximately 200 motorcycles and 350 people participated in the Ride.

  • While it rained before the Ride, the group had clear skies by the time it was ready to roll. NC Highway Patrolmen escorted us the entire 111 miles.

  • The group stopped at the NASCAR Hall of Fame for a hard hat tour, participated in a “classic charity ride pit stop” at Pilot Travel Center and arrived at Victory Junction by 2:30 p.m. ET.

  • Rumor has it that their bikes were so loud when pulling into the NASCAR Hall of Fame parking garage that they set off EVERY car alarm in the building.

  • The Gastonia HOG chapter presented a check for $30,045 to Victory Junction at Camp.
