“The King,” Richard Petty To Part With Decades Of Memorabilia, Cars [Updated]

During a 35 year career of any sort you’re bound to acquire some stuff. Now imagine that career consisted of 200 wins, 7 of which were Daytona 500 wins, and 7 NASCAR championships, you’re gonna have a lot of stuff and boy does Richard Petty if this collection is any indication.

In all Petty will send 15 lots to auction ranging from race suits worn by the Labonte brothers to memorabilia as iconic as his dayglo red and Petty Blue 1974 Dodge Charger. The same car he won 31 races in, including his 5th Daytona 500 championship. Other cars include Kasey Kahne’s No. 9 Budweiser Dodge, two Petty’s Garage built Ford Mustangs and an F-150. The auction will be live in person at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino May 12th and live online the same day hosted by Julien’s Auctions. The public exhibition of the items will be on hand daily from May 8-12.

UPDATE: Petty’s 5th Daytona 500 winning 1974 Dodge Charger sold for $490,000, Petty penny, if you will, for one of the most iconic race cars in history.
