Richard Petty 200 win custom painted helmet

 

How cool is it to paint for the King! Starting to paint helmets in the late 1990’s I never thought I would have the opportunity to Paint a helmet for Richard Petty. It was a pleasant surprise when we were asked earlier this year if we could replicate Richards open face Bell helmet he wore during his 200th win.  This year’s Coke Zero 400 July 2-4 2009 marks the 25th anniversary of Richard Petty’s historic NASCAR win.

On July 4, 1984, Petty captured his 200th carer NASCAR victory in the Independence Day holiday classic at Daytona International Speedway with President Ronald Reagan in attendance. It was the first time a sitting President of the United States attended a NASCAR race and it was the final time Petty won a NASCAR race.
