Petty Museum

Racing fans know that NASCAR’s roots are soaked in moonshine. In fact, the need for “blockade runners” to deliver moonshine to bootleggers in North Carolina created one of the most prominent family dynasties in NASCAR racing. Known as the first family of NASCAR, the Pettys have won 10 NASCAR championships and more than 250 races. At Petty Family Attractions, families can explore the career of the King of NASCAR, Richard Petty. Experience the unparalleled success story of this stock car racing family, including Lee, Kyle, and Adam Petty and Dale Inman. The Petty Museum features cars, memorabilia, trophies and life-size recreations of the Petty family’s characters from Disney-Pixar’s “Cars” movies.
