From May 5 through May 11, former NASCAR driver Kyle Petty will lead 225 motorcyclists on a 1,200-mile trek from Maine to North Carolina in the 24th edition of the Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America.

The ride is a fundraiser for the Victory Junction Gang Camp, a North Carolina camp which serves children with chronic or life-threatening illnesses. The camp was started by the Petty family in 2004 in memory of Petty’s son, Adam, who was killed in a crash during practice at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in 2000.
