Chicagoland Speedway, Victory Junction Gang Camp, the Joliet JackHammers and the City of Joliet have added a Celebrity Softball Game to the 2004 Joliet Fan Fest activities on Thursday, July 8.

NASCAR drivers Kyle Petty, Kurt Busch, Greg Biffle, Ken Schrader, David Stremme and Tim Fedewa are the first to confirm their participation in the charity softball game. Also confirmed are Ramblin? Ray and Big John Howell from Chicago?s US*99 radio station morning show. All Proceeds from the event will benefit the Victory Junction Gang Camp.

Tickets to the softball game go on sale beginning at 10 AM (CT) on Saturday, April 17 by calling the Joliet JackHammer Ticket Office at 815-726-2255.

The game will take place at Silver Cross Field which is located three miles north of Chicagoland Speedway in downtown Joliet. The state-of-the-art ballpark opened in 2002 and has a seating capacity of 4,616, but Silver Cross Field can hold more than 7,000 fans including the General Admission areas (grassy hills). Baseball America recently ranked Silver Cross Field as the 2nd best of the 66 ballparks in the independent classification of professional baseball.

The charity game will run similar to a typical softball game, but with additional entertainment features for the players and fans. Racing related raffle items and prizes will be distributed to fans throughout the game. Auction tables with autographed racing memorabilia will also be available on the concourse level for fans to bid.

?There has been such wonderful support from the entire NASCAR community towards the Victory Junction Gang Camp. The softball game in Joliet is another great example of the drivers, teams, tracks and fans rallying for this great cause. The game should be a lot of fun for the drivers and fans alike,? Kyle Petty.

Kyle Petty and wife Pattie Huffman Petty founded The Victory Junction Gang Camp in 2001 in honor of their late son, Adam. Located in Randleman, North Carolina and scheduled to open in June of 2004, Victory Junction Gang Camp will be the seventh in the network of Hole in the Wall Gang Camps, founded for kids by Paul Newman. The camp will be a place where children with chronic and life-threatening illness and their families can retreat to rejuvenate their minds, bodies and spirits.

One ticket will gain admittance into both games. Ticket prices are: $8 (General Admission), $10 (Reserved Seat) and $12 (Box Seat). This event is included in the JackHammers full season ticket package.
