Located in the hills of Randleman, North Carolina, Victory Junction is spread across 84 acres, allowing children to do what they do best - be kids, play, imagine, make friends and enjoy the adventures and experiences of camp life.
Victory Junction was the dream of Adam Petty, a fourth generation race car driver from the famous Petty family and a rising star in the sport. Adam’s passion for racing was equaled only by his compassion for others, especially children. Between races, he often visited children in pediatric hospitals. After his tragic death in a racing accident, Adam’s family and friends came together to realize his dream of a camp to serve children with serious medical conditions. Adam’s vision sprung to life when Victory Junction opened its gates in 2004.
The Petty name is the winningest surname in NASCAR history, but racing success is far from their only legacy. After a long day behind the wheel, when the sport was a fledgling series, Richard Petty could be seen signing autographs for children who took the time to stand in line. During a time when a driver’s wife went largely unseen, Lynda Petty was busy helping to start the Women’s Auxiliary of Motorsports, one of the oldest charities in NASCAR. Without the Petty family it is safe to assume NASCAR would not be quite the sport that it is today.
Because the Petty name has been synonymous with grace, achievement and philanthropy, the Petty Family Foundation was formed as a way for the entire family to stay involved with their community. Since its inception in 2008, the Petty Family Foundation has been dedicated to unlocking the potential of people and organizations by providing financial support where necessary. Staying true to the Petty family ideals, the main focus has been on supporting organizations that serve children and soldiers. However, the foundation also remains instrumental in driving forward positive change in the Piedmont Triad community.
