EXPERIENCE DATE: November 30, 2018



A lifelong fan of Richard Petty, Jeri had a dream-come-true day. So how was it? “My husband and I went to North Carolina and went Richard Petty's Museum, toured his garages and the house he was born in. We went to his home and he presented me with a customized SS Camaro. We then had lunch with Richard, his family and his crew. After lunch, we went on a tour of Victory Junction. The entire experience was just more than I could have ever dreamed of putting on my bucket list. The stories his daughter conveyed to us while she took us on the tour through the museum and garages were much more of an insight than we ever expected. Meeting the King himself was just beyond words. Such a kind and generous person.”

Meet Jeri! Her passions include zip-line, fishing, reading, gardening and… you guessed it! Racing. Why was Jeri so excited to meet Richard Petty? In her words, “He started racing before I was born and was still racing after I had my first child. And I have been watching his career the whole time.” Jeri was most looking forward to meeting the "King" himself and hearing any of his stories about his many wins. “Racing against Cale Yarborough, Bobby Allison and Dale Earnhardt, Richard is definitely a living legend.”
