Top Definition
The greatest NASCAR driver who ever lived. Totalling a record breaking 200-career wins, Richard Petty has since become known as simply "The King". Richard also totalled an amazing 7 championships, matched only by the late Dale Earnhardt Sr. Also notable is the fact that Petty had SEVEN Daytona 500 victories. He also won 27 races alone in the 1967 season, 10 victories in a row. Richard Petty earned his 200th victory at the Pepsi-Firecracker 400 at Daytona International Speedway in 1984. Petty would go on to finish 10th in points in the 1984 season. Another amazing fact is that fellow cup driver David Pearson and Richard Petty finished 1-2 63 times, also a record between two drivers. After 1984, aerodynamic developement and tire wars did Petty in. He would race another 8 seasons until 1992, his best points finish in that time being 8th in 1987.
