Kyle Petty Charity Ride

The 17th annual Kyle Petty Charity Ride stopped in Charleston, SC on May 12, and pulled out on Friday the 13th. This was the 6th, and final, stop of this year's ride as they ended the tour later that day at Amelia Island, FL.

Petty's rides have collected over 14 million for charity, chiefly for his Victory Junction Camp in NC. After meeting Kyle, and watching him interact with fans, I can say he his by far the most respectful, polite, and engaging 'celebrity' I have ever met. He makes people feel better after meeting him. I'd like to apologize to Kyle for all the jabs I've taken at him back when he was competing.

NFL Great, Hershel Walker,
rode this year.

You are a good man, Kyle Petty
