Have you ever dreamed of being a racecar driver and speeding around the Uphill Esses and Oak Tree Turn at VIR? Here’s your chance! Join us March 25 as we host our Open House and Charity Laps to benefit Victory Junction, a camp for chronically ill children started by NASCAR’s Petty family. Pay just $25 for the opportunity to drive your own car on our historic 3.27-mile full course for 15 minutes. In addition, all facilities at VIR will be open for your enjoyment.
All proceeds will go to Victory Junction, a nonprofit with the mission to enrich the lives of children with serious illnesses by providing life-changing camping experiences that are exciting, fun and empowering, in a safe and medically-sound environment, at no cost to campers and their families. Victory Junction, located in Randleman, N.C., is built on 84 acres donated by racing royalty Richard and Lynda Petty. In 2000, their son, Kyle Petty, a fixture on the NASCAR circuit for over 25 years, and Patty Petty partnered with actor and racecar driver Paul Newman to launch Victory Junction.
Since opening in 2004, Victory Junction has enriched the lives of almost 20,000 children and family members and has hosted children from all 50 states and four countries. The cost of sending one child to camp at Victory Junction is $2,500, but no family incurs that cost thanks to donors like you.
Help make the lives of these children a little brighter while having some fun. We can’t wait to see you March 25!
