RANDLEMAN, N.C. (Oct. 13, 2010) – Victory Junction announced today that it will feature a public open house in conjunction with Randleman’s NASCAR Days on Saturday, Oct. 23, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Headlining the day’s festivities is a ribbon cutting ceremony at 2:30 p.m. honoring the grand opening of Dale Jr.’s Corral and Amphitheatre, with special guests Dale Earnhardt Jr. and members of the Earnhardt and Petty families.
Dale Jr.’s Corral and Amphitheatre was generously donated by Earnhardt Jr. and will be used as both a fun, interactive activity center for campers, and a venue for local concerts and camp fundraisers. The amphitheatre is western-themed in true Dale Jr. fashion and consists of a mock jail, general store, bank and outhouse. While the venue features playful and colorful buildings, the amphitheatre’s design is fashioned after the mock western town located on Dale Jr.’s property in Mooresville, N.C. The ceremony will be followed by a live performance by the Kevin Lee Band.
All of the buildings from the Bowling Alley to the Super Dome will be open for public viewing throughout the day, giving visitors a peek at what campers get to experience. Victory Junction staff will also be on hand to help answer questions and share amazing stories about camp. Chili, hot dogs, drinks and chips will be available for purchase in the Hendrick Fuel Stop.
Hunt Brothers Pizza & Wings, as well as Bojangles’ famous sweet tea and chicken biscuits will be available on the lawn of Victory Circle. The annual “Vic’s Garage Sale,” featuring NASCAR memorabilia, will be held in the Michael Waltrip Sports Arena. All proceeds of the garage sale benefit Victory Junction.
There will be a Holiday Tours shuttle from the Petty Museum located in downtown Randleman to Victory Junction for a donation of $5 (the shuttle will run from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.). For more information regarding the open house contact LeKeshia Franklin at <mailto:email@example.com>
