This will be the 13th year for the Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America.

Nascar - USA - The Chick-fil-A Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America announced Monday the ride route for its 2007 motorcycle ride. NASCAR driver Kyle Petty will be joined by more than 250 participants, including NASCAR celebrities, ride sponsors and motorcycle enthusiasts, to travel more than 2,800 miles in eight days. The group will travel the East Coast from the woodlands of New England to the Blue Ridge Mountains as it heads towards its final destination, the beaches of Florida.

Now in its 13th year, the charity ride has included more than 5,350 riders who have logged more than 45,000 miles and donated more than $9 million to charity. In 2006, the ride donated $1.2 million to the Victory Junction Gang Camp and other children's charities. Petty and his wife, Pattie, founded the Victory Junction Gang Campexternal link, which is dedicated to enriching the lives of children with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses by providing life-changing camping experiences that are exciting, fun and empowering, in a safe and medically sound environment.

"The charity ride gets bigger and better every year thanks to the unbelievable support of our faithful riders, sponsors and fans," Petty said. "Pattie and I deeply appreciate the individuals across the nation whose generosity touches the lives of deserving children and their families. We are excited to shake things up a bit this year and travel the East Coast -- and to see our fans, who give us the energy and motivation to keep going."
