SKANEATELES, N.Y. (AP) - It's almost 11 years to the day since Adam Petty was killed during practice for a NASCAR race at New Hampshire International Speedway, and his dad never escapes a special feeling of sadness when May and Mother's Day roll around.
As Kyle Petty prepares for the start of his 17th annual charity motorcycle ride, he says ``being around people on the ride and being able to help people during this week has a little bit of a healing effect.''
Adam Petty, just 19, was killed on May 12, 2000, only weeks after running in his only Cup race, a debut that had made the Petty family the only four-generation family in NASCAR.
Kyle Petty started his charity ride in the 1990s, and it normally has been a trek from the West Coast across the country. This year, for just the third time, the ride is going from north to south.
