The charity motorcycle ride will begin and end in Corpus Christi, Texas, Labonte’s hometown, to raise awareness of and funding for the Ronald McDonald House.
The two-time Winston Cup champion commissioned artist Nick Pastura to customize a Harley-Davidson Road King Motorcycle, which he will ride in the 600-mile tour of South Texas. At the conclusion of the event, Labonte will autograph the bike and it will then be raffled off. Also present on the grounds and riding in the event as well is Kyle Petty son of The King of Racing Richard Petty.
The tour will begin on Thursday morning, April 21st in Corpus Christi and end that evening in Austin. On Friday, April 23rd, riders will travel from Austin to San Antonio by way of a big loop through the beautiful Texas Hill Country.
On Saturday, the 23rd, the “Roam” will parade to the Gulf Coast, south on Interstate 37 into Corpus Christi for closing ceremonies at the Executive Surf Club.
“The ‘Roam’ is possible because of Terry’s commitment to the city of Corpus Christi on one of his few off-weekends during the NASCAR season,” said Randall Hicks, a longtime friend of Labonte’s and one of the tour’s organizers. “It’s for a good cause and the level of interest has been unbelievably high considering this is only our second year.”
Rut Hockey will have pictures posted on the website so please stay tuned!
