- Product description
Known simply as “The King,” stock car legend Richard Petty is the most decorated driver in the history of stock car racing. He began his professional racing career on July 19, 1958, just 16 days after his 21st birthday. He went on to be named Rookie of the Year in 1959. In 1984, Petty claimed his 200th – and final – victory at the Firecrack 400 raced on the track that made him famous: the Daytona Speedway.
Richard Petty retired as a driver in 1992. A member of the Hall of Fame, he owns most of the stock car records including career victories (200), races started (1,164), and consecutive races won (10) just to name a few.
In 2010, Richard Petty was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame. With a career spanning 34 years, Petty is statistically the greatest driver in the history of NASCAR, winning both the NASCAR Championship and the Daytona 500 a record seven times. Petty's 200th career victory took place on July 4, 1984, at the Daytona International Speedway's Firecracker 400; the race was attended by President Ronald Reagan, the first sitting U.S. President to attend a NASCAR race.
