Victory Junction Gang Camp

The Victory Junction Gang Camp is a facility for terminally and chronically ill children. The camp is run by NASCAR driver Kyle Petty and his wife Pattie. It is located in Randleman, North Carolina and is a member of the " Hole in the Wall Camps transition ".

The idea to set up the camp came from Adam Petty, son of Kyle Petty. Adam Petty died in 2000 in training for a NASCAR Busch Series race at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway. That same year, Kyle Petty began with his wife and the help of Paul Newman, the founder of "Hole in the Wall", thus to realize the idea of his son and to build such a camp. Kyle and Pattie Petty spent four years trying to collect the necessary money and donations to build the camp, which was opened on 20 June 2004.

The year-round camp can accommodate around 100 children. It is kept relatively small so that the caregivers can respond appropriately to the needs of the individual. It offers, among other things, a large swimming pool, a game room, a computer room and a small clinic for accidents. Interestingly, the address is the camps with " 4500 Adam 's Way ", as Kyle Petty's son, Adam, and he was called the start number 45 ran as a racing driver. After the death of Adam Petty, his father drove the Number 45

On 18 October 2006, George W. Bush visited the Victory Junction Gang Camp. He made stuff with the campers and met at camp with NASCAR driver Michael Waltrip and Jimmie Johnson. George W. Bush subsequently praised the work of the camp.

The camp is funded mostly by donations. NASCAR driver Kurt Busch, who donated one million U.S. dollars, one of the first donors, many other NASCAR drivers, team managers and sponsors was followed. In addition, proceeds go of individual NASCAR events such as the Prelude to the Dream at the camp.
