A top 10 finish at Martinsville wasn't the only good thing that happened for Dale Earnhardt Jr. this weekend.

Saturday afternoon, the driver visited Victory Junction in Randleman, NC for the grand opening of Dale Jr.'s Corral and Amphitheatre - all donated to the camp by Earnhardt.

While the venue features playful and colorful buildings, the amphitheatre's design is fashioned after the mock western town located on Dale Jr.'s property in Mooresville, N.C.  This new addition to Victory Junction will be used as an interactive activity center for campers, and a venue for local concerts and camp fundraisers.

Founded by Kyle and Pattie Petty, Victory Junction is a camp for children with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses.

  1. This is one of the reasons people love Dale Jr. Wins, losses, it really doesn't matter, although we would all like to see him winning regularly again. What does matter is that this guy is genuine. He wears his heart on his sleeve and isn't Mr. Roboto -- as could be said of so many drivers today.
