Over the years we have completed several service projects at a very special place called Victory Junction. Projects included repairing chainlink, installing new vinyl fencing, and leading a gate operator school.
Victory Junction provides a complete summer camp experience for children with disabilities (at no cost to the campers/families). It was started by the Richard Petty family in memory of Richard‘s grandson, Adam. Adam’s passion off the race track was visiting children in hospitals with challenging medical conditions to bring them joy and laughter.
Past NAFCA President Chris Chapman, of Chapman Fence in Georgia, was key in orchestrating this project each year.
As a thank you for our service, the camp provides fantastic lodging, breakfast, and lunch. Everyone who attended enjoyed working together and the camaraderie you always find at a NAFCA event. After the projects are complete, the volunteers usually have opportunities to meet various Nascar drivers. The group tours Richard Petty’s race shop, Richard Petty Museum, and Richard Childers’ race shop and museum.
Long time NAFCA member and supporter Fence Armor put together this video from their experience at the 2018 project:
