Petty's Garage "PG" emblem.
Richard Petty has been building hot rods ever since his childhood bicycle wouldn't go fast enough. By the ripe old age of 11, he was traveling the NASCAR circuit as a mechanic on his dad's stockcars. At just 21, Petty had launched a motorsports career of speed and excellence, which even today remains unmatched in American motorsport.
For decades, the fans who had crowned Richard Petty the "King of NASCAR" equally revered Petty's Level Cross, NC garages and shops, which for more than 60 years rolled out winning stockcar after winning stockcar.
December of 2007 marked an uncertain time for the legendary Petty facility. The race team had moved to nearby Mooresville, NC, leaving empty and quiet the string of Level Cross garages at 311 Branson Mill Road in Randleman, NC.
Gone were the buzz of more than 200 employees, the rumble of race-prepped engines and the energy of mechanics, engineers and drivers preparing for the next race.
In no time, The King decided this new silence wasn't golden and he set in motion what would become a new era for the Petty facility. Just six months later, in June 2008, Petty's Garage was born.
