Mow For Victory Tour, Please read immediately
Hustler Turf Equipment will be driving a Super Z™ lawnmower that has been custom
painted to resemble Richard Petty’s #43 Dodge NASCAR race car, across America to
raise money for the Victory Junction Gang Camp. The “Mow for Victory Tour”will
start on February 27th, 2005, in Ontario, California and will end on May 28th, 2005, at
the camp in Randleman, NC.
“I’ve done a lot of driving in my time,” said Richard Petty, winner of 200 NASCAR
races, “But, I wouldn’t even try driving a lawnmower across America!”
The “Mow for Victory Tour” will cover 4000 miles as we travel through California, Arizona,
New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina,
and North Carolina progressing from Hustler dealership to Hustler dealership. We
will arrive at the camp on May 28, 2005.
A number of sponsors within and from outside the green industry have signed on
to the Mow for Victory Tour. Sponsors include: Kohler Engines, Hydro-Gear, Aluma
Trailers, Turf Magazine, ACI Motorfreight, GT Sales and Manufacturing, Printing, Inc.,
US Bank, StarCom, and Print Source.
Victory Junction Gang Camp is a year-round, racing-themed camp in Randleman,
North Carolina, just outside of Greensboro. The camp serves campers ages 7 to 15 who
have chronic or life-threatening illnesses that might not otherwise be able to go to summer
Each week-long session of 125 campers is organized into disease-specific groups.
The Victory Junction Gang Camp serves kids with hemophilia, rheumatoid arthritis,
cancer, spina bifi da, kidney diseases, asthma, sickle cell disease, burn survivors, skin
disease, heart disease, epilepsy, and immune disorders.
Children attend the camp free of charge. The camp is entirely funded by contributions.
Victory Junction Gang Camp was launched in 2000 by NASCAR driver Kyle Petty and
his wife Pattie in honor of their son Adam Petty who proposed the idea for the camp in
1998. Adam was killed in a racing accident in 2000. The camp is part of the network of
Hole-in-the-Wall-Gang camps founded by Paul Newman in 1988.
