Petty GMS Unveil Throwback Schemes For Darlington

STATESVILLE, N.C. – As the NASCAR Cup Series embarks on its traditional Throwback Weekend at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway, Petty GMS will pay tribute to Lee and Richard Petty by throwing back to the inaugural Daytona 500 in 1959. Ty Dillon will honor the patriarch of the Petty family, Lee, by sporting the No. The Petty father-son duo would sport one of each, with Lee driving the No. After a close finish, Lee and Beauchamp together drove to victory lane before NASCAR named Beauchamp the winner. A member of the 2011 NASCAR Hall of Fame class, Lee Petty won a total of 54 races, including 11 in 1959, and three championships. The inaugural Daytona 500 win marked Lee’s only victory in “The Great American Race.”. 43, everybody knows who Richard Petty is whether they are a race fan or not,” said Jones.
