: NASCAR has identified Victory Junction Gang Camp as "A Proud Charity of NASCAR," it was announced today. NASCAR will work with Victory Junction Gang Camp to build awareness of the camp's mission through a media campaign that reaches across all of NASCAR's licensed media. Additionally, NASCAR is planning a fall fundraiser for the camp. Victory Junction Gang Camp, founded by NASCAR driver Kyle Petty and his wife Pattie in honor of their late son Adam, will provide camp sessions year-round for children ages 7-15 with life-threatening illnesses. Like other camps under the umbrella of The Association of Hole in the Wall Gang Camps founded by actor Paul Newman, Victory Junction Gang Camp will have a unique design geared toward making every child's camp experience unforgettable and empowering. Victory Junction Gang Camp will have a racing theme that allows campers to begin their experience by entering the camp through a tunnel and crossing a starting line into the world of racing.. When complete, Victory Junction's 65-acre site will have more than 36 buildings, including a dining hall, gym, pool, theater, therapeutic equestrian center, arts and crafts center, race shop and cabins.. Most importantly, the camp will offer a sophisticated medical facility staffed by a team of professionals capable of administering to the needs of these children, up to and including the administering of chemotherapy. The Victory Junction Gang Camp will be located in Randleman, N.C., on land donated by Richard and Lynda Petty.. The camp will be free to children and their families and will be the only year round multi-disease camp of its kind in the Carolinas and Virginia.. It is solely supported by contributions and donations from corporations, individuals and foundations..
