Omix-ADA will showcase a custom-built Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited in support of SEMA Cares in the Grand Lobby at the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, November 1–4. This custom Jeep signifies the fourth time that Omix-ADA has partnered with SEMA Cares, and the third time that a one-off custom Jeep will be offered at auction in 2017. All proceeds will benefit Victory Junction—a camp dedicated to enriching the lives of children affected by serious illness or chronic medical conditions.
This year’s Jeep build will be prepared by the automotive experts at Petty’s Garage in Level Cross, North Carolina. Originated by stock-car racing legend Richard Petty, his involvement in this Jeep build is monumental because Victory Junction was inspired by and operates as a living tribute to Petty’s grandson Adam, who was lost in a racing accident in 2000. As a teenager, Adam Petty dreamed of developing such a camp in the beautiful hills of his home state of North Carolina to fulfill his passion for helping children, leaving behind a legacy of love that his family carries on in his memory today.
Starting life as a stock ’16 Hydro Blue JK Rubicon, adding a full array of Rugged Ridge parts and accessories, many never before seen in the market, will transform this Petty’s Garage-built ’16 JKU into the ultimate off-road masterpiece.
The SEMA Cares Committee was established in 2007 by SEMA’s Board of Directors with an aim to bring the voice and resources of the SEMA community together to make a positive difference in the lives of others, through outreach programs and various fundraising efforts.
