More than 175 riders will take part in the Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America, which begins in Napa, Calif., and travels over 2,500 miles before finishing at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas. Founded by former NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Kyle Petty, the ride raises funds and awareness for Victory Junction, a camp created for children with chronic or life threatening illnesses.
A fuel stop is planned in Delta Wednesday, May 2, as the riders travel from Grand Junction to Albuquerque, N.M. They will stop at Western, 1430 Highway 50, at approximately 8:30 a.m. NASCAR legend Kyle Petty and other celebrity riders, including NFL great Herschel Walker, will be among the riders.
