One of NASCAR�s favorite charities that most of its drivers are involved in is the �Victory Junction Gang.� This charity is one in the network of Paul Newman�s Hole In The Wall Gang Camps. But the Victory Junction Gang was really started by Kyle and Pattie Petty in honor of their son, Adam, who died in May 2000 during a practice for a NASCAR Busch Grand National Series race in Loudon, New Hampshire.

The purpose of this camp is to give children with life threatening diseases a chance to be kids again and to forget for a small moment in their lives that they are sick and to be just what every other person their age is, a kid. "
