Victory Junction celebrates 10 years


NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams will recognize the 10th anniversary of the Victory Junction Gang Camp during the Camping World RV Sales 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon on Sunday by carrying Victory Junction 10 year decals on their race cars.

The Victory Junction Gang Camp opened in Randleman, N.C., in 2004. It was founded by former NASCAR driver and current NASCAR on TNT personality Kyle Petty and his wife Pattie Petty in honor of their son Adam Petty who died at the age of 19 in a Busch (now-Nationwide) Series practice crash at New Hampshire in 2000.

Victory Junction offers camping experiences year-round to seriously ill children between the ages of six and 16. Campers attend the camp free of charge, as the camp opereates on donations. To date, the camp has hosted more than 20,000 children, including children from all 50 states and several foreign countries.

The camp is a member of Paul Newman’s SeriousFun Children’s Network and is accredited by the American Camping Association.

Decals will be handed out to race teams on Friday by Victory Junction staff.
