“We’re thrilled that the King is able to make time in his schedule to visit with his fans at the car show,” said R.W. “Bob” O’Gorman, ALI president. “This is a great opportunity for folks to walk the grounds where the Petty racing legacy began — to see the house where he was born, explore the garages where the famous No. 43 and other race cars were built, and check out the trophies and memorabilia in the new Richard Petty Museum — on the same day that they meet the man himself. For racing fans, it really doesn’t get much better than this.”
The autograph session and entry into the Richard Petty Museum are included in car show admission. Petty will autograph up to two items per car show attendee.
In addition to the anticipated 300 cars on display, the Petty’s Garage Car Show will feature a DJ, vendors and entertainment for the entire family. Attendees can see some of the latest performance cars being built by Richard Petty’s custom speed shop, Petty’s Garage. Spectator tickets are available at the gate for just $5. Kids ages 10 and under get in free.
Space is still available to register cars for the show. An exclusive dinner on Oct. 9 at Petty’s home, Reverie Place, that was open to the first 100 registered car owners has sold out. The car show entry fee is $35 per car and includes a goody bag, dash plaque, and entry into the Richard Petty Museum. The car show is open to all makes and models, with awards given to the top 50 vehicles and specialties.
Gates are open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 10, and judging begins at noon. The Richard Petty Museum opens at 9 a.m.
Stop by the ALI display at the show to learn about vehicle lift safety and enter to win Richard Petty Museum gift cards, a limited edition No. 43 scale model and Petty autographed merchandise. Additional door prizes will be awarded.
The Petty’s Garage Fifth Annual Car Show will be held on the Level Cross Petty Enterprises Historical Site, home of Petty’s Garage and the Richard Petty Museum, 311 Branson Mill Road in Randleman, NC.
