Chick-fil-A Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America Rolls Past DIS

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Amid police escorts and the roar of thousands of horsepower - the Chick-fil-A Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America rolled past the storied racing venue of Daytona International Speedway on Friday morning.

A handful of race fans lined International Speedway Blvd. as a group of more than 100 motorcycles rode past "The World Center of Racing" and The Daytona 500 Experience motorsports attraction on the final day of the seven-day, 2,800 mile journey.

The ride kicked off on Saturday, July 14 in Bar Harbor, Maine and concludes on Friday night at the Seminole Hard & Rock Casino in Hollywood, Fla.

Now in its 13th year, the Charity Ride has included more than 5,350 riders who have logged more than 45,000 miles and donated more than $9 million to charity. In 2006, the Ride donated $1.2 million to the Victory Junction Gang Camp and other children's charities.

Petty and his wife, Pattie, founded the Victory Junction Gang Camp, which is dedicated to enriching the lives of children with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses by providing life-changing camping experiences that are exciting, fun and empowering, in a safe and medically sound environment.
