Kyle Petty’s charity ride kicking off in Portland
The 1,200-mile motorcycle ride, which raises money for his Victory Junction children's camp, starts Saturday.

...And just as there was no doubt Petty would be a racer, there was also no doubt what he would do with his notoriety.

“Racing was what we did,” he said. “And we were able to use that platform to do different things. And with the things you do and the blessings you receive and the notoriety you receive is a responsibility to do something with it. So you take that and you turn it into something good.”

Petty, now a NASCAR analyst for NBC, will be in Portland this week for the start of his 24th annual Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America, a 1,200-mile motorcycle trek to Greensboro, North Carolina, to raise money and awareness for Victory Junction, a camp established by Petty’s family to provide camping experiences for children ages 6-16 with chronic or life-threatening illnesses.
