Kyle Petty Announces Charity Ride Revival

This fall, Kyle Petty will host the “Charity Ride Revival (CRR),” a one-time only, miniature version of his annual Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America. The CRR was created in response to postponing the larger Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America until Spring 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Differing from the annual Ride, the CRR will be half the time, half the size and based at one single hotel–The Omni Homestead Resort in Hot Springs, VA. It will also only include previous participants of the Ride. These are precautions put in place by the Ride to protect the safety of participating riders and team members. 

From September 21–23, the CRR will travel a different route each day to a unique point of interest for riders to explore and enjoy before returning to the hotel. 

“With the COVID-19 vaccine rollout and restrictions being lifted, we wanted to do something to get our riders back together again in a safe way; thus, the Charity Ride Revival was created as a way to do just that,” said Kyle Petty, former NASCAR driver, current NBC Sports racing analyst and founder of the ride. 

Kyle Petty’s 2021 Charity Ride Revival Schedule:
    •    Day 1, Tuesday, September 21 – National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, VA
    •    Day 2, Wednesday, September 22 – Seneca Rocks in Seneca Rocks, WV
    •    Day 3, Thursday, September 23 – New River Gorge National Park and Preserve in West Virginia

The CRR will continue the ride’s mission of raising funds and awareness for Victory Junction–a camp dedicated to providing life-changing camping experiences for children with chronic and serious medical illnesses.
