Former NASCAR driver Kyle Petty is making a stop in Midland today. Everyone is welcome to come out and welcome the  20th Anniversary Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America to Midland at the Homewood Suites by Hilton, located at 1401 Tradewinds Boulevard.

"The parade of more than 200 riders – including several notable celebrities – will arrive at 5:30 p.m. After the welcome from Mayor Jerry Morales, fans and spectators will have the opportunity to take photos and receive autographs – and also contribute to the Ride’s “Small Change. Big Impact.” program, which accepts donations at local stops along the Ride’s route."


Some of the celebrities attending the event will be Kyle Petty, NASCAR legends Richard Petty, Geoff Bodine and Harry Gant, former NFL great Herschel Walker, Fox News contributor Col. Allen West, Host of NBC’s NASCAR America Rick Allen, and co-host of History Channel’s Top Gear America and NASCAR personality Rutledge Wood.

“It’s an incredible opportunity to ride across America on a motorcycle with 200 of your closest friends,” said Petty. “But the best part is – we’re doing it for the kids. We’ve seen so many lives touched at Victory Junction as a result of the generous support we receive along our route each year.”  Kyle Petty

This event is free and open to everyone. We just ask that you remember to give back!
