Richard Petty Richard Petty is The King, not just of NASCAR, but also of commercial endorsements. A winner of a record 200 races (including the Daytona 500 seven times), Richard Petty is one of the main reasons that NASCAR is the huge success that it is today. Over 35 years of racing, no driver was more dominant than Petty and it’s likely no driver ever will be again. With his famous red and blue STP-sponsored #43 car, Petty was an unstoppable force on the racetrack. Richard Petty’s legacy lives on in the millions of NASCAR fans he helped create and also through his son Kyle Petty. Petty’s own father, Lee Petty, was a NASCAR champion and winner of the first Daytona 500 in 1959. When Richard Petty retired in 1992, the outpouring of support from race fans was remarkable. His trademark sunglasses and Charlie One Horse hat are still recognizable the world over.
