Kyle Petty Charity Ride Day

 – By

On Wednesday, May 17, Wall wel-comed roughly 250 motorcyclists to the city. The Kyle Petty Ride Across America Charity Ride rolled into Wall just before 11 a.m. Mo-torcyclists stopped briefly to fill with gas at Wall Drug Auto Livery before heading to Main Street for lunch at Badlands Harley-Davidson. The group, led by former NASCAR driver and NBC Analyst Kyle Petty, was on a 2,400 mile route from Portland, OR, to Mil-waukee, WI, with a goal to raise funds and awareness for Victory Junction – a camp dedi-cated to providing life-changing camping ex-periences for children with chronic or life-threatening illnesses.
