TTM Success - Richard Petty
So, when I saw that Richard Petty signed TTM, I wanted to be able to use this one lonely NASCAR card. What better name from NASCAR could I attempt, anyway? I believe I have met Petty once, when I was much younger. I believe it was at a chicken stew at a drag racer's house, but I don't quite remember. I do know that I met Dale Earnhardt a long time ago (Mom still has the autograph that I got).
Petty (b. 1937) raced in NASCAR's top series from 1958 until 1992, capturing 7 series championships (1964, 1967, 1971, 1972, 1974, 1975 and 1979) and 200 race victories. His 200 race victories are a sports record that likely will never be broken. He was among the inaugural class of NASCAR Hall of Fame inductees in 2010. He is also a member of the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America (1989) and the International Motorsports Hall of Fame (1997). He was also awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President George H. W. Bush in 1992.
I mailed to Petty on January 9 and got the card back on January 14, for a 5-day TAT.
