Richard Petty Comments on the Retirement of Humpy Wheeler

"It may be a few more years before we can really measure the impact that Humpy Wheeler had on the sport of stock car racing. Over his 33-year career, he and I had one thing in common. We both have always held true to the notion that the fans are what drive our sport. His passion was to ensure that when each fan left the track, they felt as if they had been a part of a happening. Under his direction, Lowe's Motor Speedway became the gold standard by which all other racetracks were built and in how they were measured. Whatever he chooses to do next, I'm sure he will go about it in the same way.
