Petty won more races (13) at Richmond International Raceway than any other driver in the track’s history. His NASCAR career statistics are regarded as the standard of excellence in the annals of motorsports history. He is now an owner in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, fielding cars for Kasey Kahne, Elliott Sadler, AJ Allmendinger and Paul Menard.
