Any Guesses On Richard Petty’s Most Prized Possession?
The man, the legend. The King of racing. With so many trophies, titles, and other memorabilia, what would Richard Petty’s most prized possession be?
Of course, the accomplishments are all nice and up for observation at Petty’s museum. But there’s one that sticks out to him in particular. In Depth with Graham Bessinger had the privilege of being able to tour his personal museum with The King himself. Richard himself says that one of his most revered possessions is not other than the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
The metal was bestowed upon Petty by President George HW Bush. The medal is one that’s given to a very select few and is one that can only be given out by the President of the United States to somebody who has proven to leave one of the biggest impacts possible on humanity. Can’t say we blame Petty, that’s a pretty big honor.
