Richard Petty's 1984 Pontiac at Daytona and "Richard Petty: The Crowning Achievement" video series.

Welcome back ladies and gentleman, one thing that I like to do is see footage and interviews of a historical win in NASCAR history. So with the help of Edelman PR I am going to introduce you to a three part video series of Richard Petty’s Crowning Achievement.

The Richard Petty Crowning Achievement video series focuses on the King’s career and his historic 200th win in the 1984 Firecracker 400 at Daytona International Speedway which includes exclusive footage and interviews with the King himself.

In part 1 (below), Richard Petty reflects on scoring his record-setting win in front of President Ronald Reagan.

Part 2 details Richard Petty talking about the perfect storm that led to his making sports history.” And finally in part 3, experience Richard Petty’s 25th anniversary celebration at Daytona and get behind the wheel with him as he takes a lap around the famous track.

Richard Petty is one of the greatest NASCAR drivers in history with 7 NASCAR championships, 200 wins, the 200 wins is a record that in my opinion no one is going to break in years to come and 1,184 starts over 35 years.

The pictures (below) are of the #43 STP Pontiac (replica) Richard Petty:
