‘The King is coming to Goodwood’. Great news that the 77 year old (clearly evergreen) NASCAR legend Richard Petty is coming to Goodwood FOS and he is bringing a 1970 Plymouth Superbird along for the show.

If you have never heard of Richard Petty then here are a few numbers (that’ll take you until FOS) to crunch: 1184 top-class NASCAR starts across 35 seasons between 1958 and 1992 – totalling 307,836 laps of action – that yielded 200 wins for Plymouth, Ford, Dodge, Oldsmobile, Chevrolet, Buick and Pontiac (a record, by a margin of 95!), 555 top-five finishes, 712 top-10 results, 123 pole positions, 51,419 laps in the lead and seven championship titles. Oh, and that little lot earned him $8,541,201 in prize money alone.
