26th Kyle Petty Charity Ride Kicks Off in the Valley

Revved up and ready for one of the most beautiful tours in the nation.

The 26th edition of the Kyle Petty Charity Ride, featuring over 200 riders and 125 motorcycles, will travel more than 1,500 miles over seven days through Arizona and into Utah. For the first time ever, the ride will also start its tour and conclude the ride at the same location. After visiting with fans in Phoenix, the ride headed to Phoenix Raceway to take their green flag on April 30. The tour will conclude their trip back at Phoenix Raceway to take the checkered flag.

All of the funds raised through participation and merchandise sales benefit Victory Junction, a camp created by Petty and his family that is dedicated to providing life-changing camping experiences for children with serious medical illnesses.

“We’ve been planning this 26th Anniversary Ride since the end of our 2019 event, and patiently waiting for the right time to gather again amidst the coronavirus pandemic. So now, nearly three years in the making, I’m beyond thrilled to finally get our Riders back together for an exciting adventure in Arizona and Utah,” said Petty. “This year’s Ride is all about stopping to see some of the beautiful places we’ve ridden by in the past, mixed with a few new places for our Riders to explore. Together, we will create memories to last a lifetime. And it’s all for the kids at Victory Junction! We ride so that deserving kids get to experience the magic of Camp.”
