AJ Gets Ready for the Kings CupMay 21, 2010
Friday-May 21-2010-AJ was setting the pace once again on Thursday, but his competition was admittedly not as stout as usual this time.
Always one looking for track time, AJ was rarely out of thee kart as he stayed on track as the fields were formed with some practice for Tuesday's (May 25) King’s Cup – Karting for a Cause” presented by Harris Teeter.
The race will feature two teams from Best Buy as the support from the NACAR paddock has continued to swell ahead of the second annual running of the event.
"That was fun! I didn't have too much patience out there I guess--if I got held up for more than two corners, I had to do a little rubbing and get by. I don't think they were expecting me to stay out there that long. It's going to be fun on Tuesday-therer are going to be a lot of folks from Best Buy with us, and we are hopefully going to raise a lot of money. This was a great way to get in the mood for Tuesday!"
The race, which will look to go even better than last year's $60,000 raised for the Paralyzed Veterans of America will see strong support and representation from the Richard Petty Motorsports organization, including (of course!) Richard Petty, Kasey Kahne and Elliott Sadler.

About Paralyzed Veterans of America
Sixty-four years ago, Paralyzed Veterans of America was founded by a band of spinal cord injured service members who returned home from World War II to a grateful nation, but also to a world with few solutions to the challenges they faced. These veterans from the “Greatest Generation” made a decision not just to live, but to live with dignity as contributors to society. They created an organization dedicated to veterans service, medical research and civil rights for people with disabilities. And for more than six decades, Paralyzed Veterans of America and its 34 chapters have been working to create an America where all veterans and people with disabilities, and their families, have everything they need to thrive.
