A Mitchell man will soon join 200 bikes on a 2,400-mile trek.

Brian Klock, owner of Mitchell's Klock Werks, was selected as the "Angel Rider" for the 23rd Anniversary Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America. He was nominated by former NASCAR driver and NBC racing analyst Kyle Petty.

Every year, an Angel Rider is selected to participate in the ride free of charge based on nominations received for an individual who is instrumental in their local community.

Klock will ride on a custom-made motorcycle. This year's ride will raise funds for Victory Junction - a camp dedicated to providing life-changing camping experiences for children with chronic or life-threatening illnesses.
