The role of family has been synonymous with NASCAR since its inception, and few pedigrees epitomize its significance as perfectly as the Petty family’s. This talented multigenerational crew has been involved in the sport since the inaugural NASCAR premier series season in 1949. Together, they achieved countless NASCAR “firsts” and set records—some of which are unbreakable. Perhaps more importantly, the Petty family has touched millions through charitable and civic work. Featuring artifacts that have never been seen by the public, this exhibit explores how, across four generations, the Petty family’s accomplishments on and off the track have left an indelible mark on the lives of many. Coinciding with Richard Petty’s 80th birthday in July, the exhibit also gives fans an interactive way to honor “The King” as he reaches this milestone.
