Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America in home stretch, to be featured today on NASCAR America


Kyle Petty’s Charity Ride Across America is in the home stretch — and we’ll be featuring it on Thursday’s edition of NASCAR America at 5 pm ET on NBCSN

As has been the case in the previous 20 years of the Ride, several of Kyle’s closest friends and family members are taking part on at least some segments of the Ride, which raises funds for Victory Junction Gang Camp.

Among those family and friends are Kyle’s father, NASCAR Hall of Famer Richard “The King” Petty, NASCAR driver Matt Kenseth, NASCAR on NBC’s Rick Allen and Rutledge Wood and others.

The eight-day ride concludes tomorrow with the final leg from Hutchinson, Ks. to Branson, Mo.

Kyle’s been keeping folks posted on the progress of the Ride. Check out some of his tweets:
