A NASCAR icon's musical soul and passion for helping children heal

Kyle Petty travels to Seattle to launch his most ambitious, cross-country charity ride to date.

SEATTLE — Every year Kyle Petty undertakes a cross-country road trip for charity, benefiting Victory Junction, a camp for kids with chronic illnesses and disabilities. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the ride and is the longest ever, covering eleven states in nine days.

Kyle joined us to share more about the inspiration for the ride, how helping children living with chronic illness helps feed his soul, and mapped out this year's ride. He also performed an original song and talked about his lifelong connection to music.

Kyle Petty's 25th Anniversary Charity Ride Across America kicks off at 7:00 am on Friday, May 3, 2019, at Manheim Seattle's Kent location (19711 77th Ave S, Kent, WA 98032). Visit the website to check out where the group will stop along the way and cheer them on.
