This weekend the cars at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Race will be wearing special decals. These will be there in order to celebrate 10 years of Victory Junction. The race will be taking place at New Hampshire Motor Speedway at Loudon and all of the cup teams will have it on their cars. The race will take place on the 13th July.
Victory Junction is a North Carolina camp which is for children with serious illnesses. They can go on a camp which is in a safe environment for them and provides any medical treatment that they might need. The ca,p was founded by the Petty family. This was in honour of Adam Petty who was involved in a racing accident in 2000. He would have been 34 on Thursday and his father will be in Loudon, the location of the accident on Sunday at 1pm ET as part of TNT’s coverage of the Camping World RV Sales 301. He will be talking to the media as the decals are being handed out to the teams and / or drivers. The charity raises money in different ways including the annual Kyle Petty Charity Ride which has run for twenty years now.
Since 2004 Victory Junction have been giving children the opportunity to go camping in a safe environment where they can try new things in a state of the art facility. Children are able to gain independence and have fun and the camps are available for children in 50 states as well as some foreign countries as well. The camps take place year round and are for children aged from six to 16. The children can go to the camp free of charge with funding being provided by charitable donations from individuals, foundations and corporations.
