NASCAR legend Richard Petty may have just celebrated his 80th birthday, but that doesn’t mean he’s slowing down.
The driver who won 200 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races, along with seven Cup titles, stars in a video just released by his Petty Garage high performance speed shop.
The video shows a Randolph County (NC) sheriff’s deputy getting a call about a speeding black Mustang.
Petty is the driver and speeds by the sheriff at 80 mph.
“Now I see you,” the sheriff says as he turns on his lights.
Petty speeds off at 143 mph, which is symbolic of his No. 43 race car.
“Now you don’t,” Petty responds.
