Several NASCAR personalities scheduled to participate in the one-day ride

CONCORD, N.C. (Sept. 6, 2011) – Motorcycle enthusiasts will have the opportunity to enjoy another scenic ride while raising money for Victory Junction on the 2011 Ride to Victory on Sunday, Oct. 16. For the second consecutive year riders will depart zMAX Dragway but will enjoy a new route for the ninth annual event.

This year the itinerary takes participants through the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina with a lap around scenic Lake Lure, concluding at Harley-Davidson of Asheville in Swannanoa, N.C.

“This ride is perfect for motorcycle fans looking to get out and spend the day with some fellow riders,” said Kyle Petty, former NASCAR driver and current racing analyst. “I like that we can offer it to fans attending the race that wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to ride with us. The fact that various people from our NASCAR community join us allows those fans the chance to see how our community comes together to help each other. I’m very appreciative of everyone who supports the Ride to Victory.”

The one-day motorcycle event gives riders the opportunity to travel across North Carolina with members of the NASCAR community while supporting a great cause. The ride is scheduled to depart at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 16, the day following the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The cost to participate in the Ride to Victory IX is $45 in advance and $55 the day of the event. Each participant receives a commemorative t-shirt, decal, pin and lunch. Participants can pre-register by visiting or calling 704-714-4545.

Additionally, the public can make a $10 donation to the Kyle Petty Ride Charity Ride by texting the word RIDE to 27722 from their mobile phones.

An extension of the Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America, this year’s Ride to Victory will benefit Victory Junction, a year-round camping facility serving children with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses. The ride also honors Click Baldwin, longtime friend of Petty, a valuable member of the board of directors for the KPCR organization and owner of Carolina Harley-Davidson in Gastonia. Baldwin passed away in 2008 following a motorcycle accident in Montana.
