Dale Jr. Breaks Ground at Victory Junction

You gotta love Dale Jr.

The driver visited Victory Junction Saturday to break ground on the camp's new Dale Jr. Corral and Amphitheatre.

Junior recently donated $1 million to the year-round camp which benefits children with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses. The camp was founded by NASCAR driver and racing analyst Kyle Petty and his wife Pattie.

I wasn't at Saturday's event, but a lot of campers and their parents were. And those in attendance were treated to autographs and a chance to thank Junior in person for his generous donation.  One camper even gave Dale Jr. a baby goat.

Our friends at the Kyle Petty Charity Ride were there to document the day, and they were kind enough to send photos my way:
