Richard Petty Celebrates 70th on July 2

Level Cross, N.C. (July 1, 2007)- Richard Petty, "The King" of NASCAR will celebrate his 70th birthday in his hometown of Randleman, North Carolina Monday. Petty is looking forward to be at home for the occasion.

"I can't remember the last time I've been home to celebrate my birthday," stated Petty. "I've always been in Daytona. That was fine, too. We won a lot of races there, but it will be nice to be around the family. It's just the way the date landed this year."

"I don't know what anyone has planned," continued Petty. "I leave that up to my wife. She will let me know and we'll do that. Then it's back to Daytona because that's what we know."
