Society Presents Check to Kyle Petty's Children's Camp

One of NASCAR's most popular drivers, Kyle Petty, was in town for Saint Patrick's Day. For all the fun and to pick up a nice check for his children's camp. The check was presented by the Society of the Friendly Sons of Saint Patrick.

Victory Junction is a camp for children with chronic illnesses and life-threatening diseases.

"It's a special place," Petty said. "We lost our son five years ago, and we built the camp in memory of him. A little bit of him. A little bit of Adam is there every time there's a kid there."

The camp is located in Randleman, North Carolina, near Greensboro. More than 3,000 children are expected to attend this year.
