Kyle Petty Charity Ride and VersaTruss

In 1995 NASCAR driver Kyle Petty combined his passion for helping others with his love of motorcycles to create the Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America. One of the most successful and popular charity events in the country, the annual motorcycle trek engages celebrities, ride sponsors, motorcycle enthusiasts, fans and local communities to raise funds and awareness for Victory Junction. Since 1995, more than 8,175 riders have logged 11.9 million cumulative motorcycle miles and raised more than $18 million for Victory Junction and other children’s charities.

Since it’s inception in 2004 Victory Junction has served as the Ride’s primary beneficiary. Located on 84 acres in Randleman, North Carolina, Victory Junction exists to enrich the lives of children with chronic or life-threatening illnesses by creating camping experiences that are memorable, fun, empowering, physically safe and medically sound.

But what would a huge event like this be without an official start line. VersaTruss was honored to be chosen to build the start line for this amazing event.

The structure is a massive two lane four cord structure with quad square uprights on both sides. As seen in the photo above, this official start line has been in play for years with only the banners changing from year to year.

It is a majestic structure that  offers so much to any event simply because of its overwhelming ability to guide people in the right direction. It can be seen from afar and banners are easily mounted and changed when required.

With this kind of display truss structure, don’t let its size overwhelm you; all of the components are manufactured from aircraft aluminum with offers exceptional strength and light weight. All of the components are modular allowing for easy assembly.

Many of our customers have used this exact design as entranceways to theme parks, arena’s and sporting event coliseums where the archways are permanently secured.
