Buzzfire, Inc., “Buzzfire,” announced today that its President and CEO, Randy Zahora, will be riding on the 21st Kyle Petty Charity Ride. Mr. Zahora said, “This will be my 16th year I have participated on the charitable ride. The annual ride raises funds and awareness for Victory Junction, a camp created by the Petty family to enrich the lives of children with chronic or life-threatening illnesses, and I am blessed to participate again this year.”
The route for the 21st anniversary Kyle Petty Charity Ride has been announced. The yearly motorcycle ride benefiting Victory Junction will take place May 2-8, 2015, and take 200 riders from Santa Cruz, California, to Branson, Missouri.
After kicking off in Santa Cruz, the 2,500-mile route will make stops in Bakersfield, California; Tonopah, Nevada; Bryce Canyon, Utah; Moab, Utah; Colorado Springs, Colorado; and Hutchinson, Kansas before ending in Branson. Mr. Zahora will then ride from Branson, MO to his home in the western suburbs of Chicago logging over 3,500 miles in his eight day journey.
"Each year, we select a route that's full of breathtaking scenery, while also allowing us to spread the word and build excitement around our mission along the way," said Kyle Petty. "Year after year, the Ride creates lasting memories for our riders, most importantly, it provides life-changing opportunities for children at Victory Junction."
The ride has allowed 7,815 children to attend Victory Junction free of charge.
This year's riders include NASCAR Hall of Fame driver Richard Petty, Joe Gibbs Racing's Matt Kenseth, former drivers Harry Gant and Donnie Allison, former NFL player Herschel Walker, Harley-Davidson, Inc. president and chief executive officer Matt Levatich, and NASCAR personalities Rick Allen and Rutledge Wood.
"When Kyle started this Ride 21 years ago, I don't think any of us realized just how special it would become," said Richard Petty. "Riding across our beautiful country on two wheels with great friends and family is incredible, but knowing you're doing it to help others makes it the ride of a lifetime."
