Richard Petty is the first memory I have of Nascar, circa 1970. Being 6 years old at the time, I really knew nothing of the sport except that I liked the pretty cars with painted numbers and scripted names. But I've always associated Nascar with Richard Petty, and driving really fast in a winged Plymouth Superbird. So here I am paying homage. One day I hope to get to meet the "king of racing".
