The Florida Highway Patrol welcomed the Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America into the state of Florida on Friday, June 27, as the caravan entered Pensacola on its way east and then south to Daytona for the big celebration commemorating Dale Earnhardt. With two marked units waiting at the state line, approximately 200 motorcyclists and over one hundred other vehicles entered Florida in the long procession.

The first "pit stop" in Florida was held at the Avalon exit in Santa Rosa County, where hundreds of Nascar racing fans gathered to welcome the charity ride participants. After a short rest break, the ride continued southeast to its final destination, the Boggy Creek Gang Camp outside of Daytona Beach. The FHP, along with several county agencies, provided escort service for the charity participants as they completed their ride across America.
