If you are refering to the Petty clan. They have the money that they have not only from their race team but from very smart investments!!!! Not to mention they have nice homes and all but they live below their means. They do not throw money arround like some other people do. Get a clue girl. I'm not even a Petty fan and I can understand this. Richard was the really great driver in the family. Victory Junction is a NONPROFIT!!!! All the money goes to the kids. How do you think some that can not afford camp get there?

Kyle's grandfather, Lee Petty was one of the pioneer drivers in NASCAR and was the Grand National Champion in 1954, 1958 and 1959. Lee was the founder of Petty Enterprises. Kyle's father, Richard Petty won 200 Grand National/Cup races and was a seven time champion. During the 60's and 70's, the Petty family became very wealthy but always have been very frugal and invested wisely. To this day, Richard and Linda live in the same house in Greensboro that they have been in since 1974. Over the years, Kyle has made extremely good money himself in racing without being a winning driver especially in the erly ninties while driving for Felix Sabates. Don't let the fact the Petty Enterprises hasn't been a big winner in the last 15 years or so and rather than take money out of their own pocket to race on, had sold part of the ownership to Boston Ventures and now has merged with George Gillette confuse you. The Petty's personal wealth is as great as ever. Many people vacationing on the coast of North Carolina stay in resorts in which the Pettys are investors without even knowing it. In years passed, we North Carolians had hopes that Richard would become govenor. Perhaps some day Kyle will run for the office. Regardless, the Petty family doesn't need to "skim off the top". Kyle's charities and ride across America program had been going on for many years before the Victory Junction Gang Camp was started. On land provided by the Pettys I might add.
