Junction Gang Camp Unveiled their New Bus
November 25, 2003
This, of course,
is not their new bus, but they liked the way I designed their
logo to extend around the nose of our G-99. This car raced
with Kyle Petty, Paul Newman, and Gunnar at Watkins Glen this
at Victory Junction saw our race car and asked me if there
was a possibility that I would design the artwork for their
new Thomas Built Bus. I was honored that they would ask and
looked forward to helping out the camp in any way I could.
So, I contacted Carlos Galarza, the artist that helps with
the artwork on our t-shirts and he was game to give me a hand
by drawing out my designs. The artwork was accepted by the
people at Victory Junction. The Petty Enterprises' graphic
installers, Motorsports Designs, took over all the printing
and application. The bus was unveiled at the camp in North
Carolina yesterday, November 24th. I was invited and had the
chance to meet Gunnar there (he drove in from Atlanta). On

awesome short bus!
the existing Victory Junction logo and added the trees, which
is what I figure the rope swing would hang from. I got the
idea from www.pettyracing.com
website where there is a photo of the Petty Family home with
big trees in front. I thought if a tire would swing anywhere,
it would be swinging from the Petty trees.
that makes a lot of this happen at Victory Junction is Mary
Barr. Mary and the rest of the staff are awesome! The Petty's
are so lucky to have such a great group of people working
for the Victory Junction Gang Camp.
The picture on

at Victory Junction Camp. The other picture is Mary and Heather.
Heather worked for Boggy Creek, another Hole in the Wall Camp
founded by Paul Newman, for seven years before she joined
the Victory Junction Gang Camp. We got to take the first ride
on the new bus to Sir Pizza in Randleman. Randleman is also
the new location for the Petty Museum. Oh yea...the pizza
