The Petty name is the winningest surname in NASCAR history, but racing success is far from their only legacy.  After a long day behind the wheel, when the sport was a fledgling series, Richard Petty could be seen signing autographs for children who took the time to stand in line.  During a time when a driver’s wife went largely unseen, Lynda Petty was busy helping to start the Women’s Auxiliary of Motorsports, one of the oldest charities in NASCAR.  Without the Petty family it is safe to assume NASCAR would not be quite the sport that it is today.


Because the Petty name has been synonymous with grace, achievement and philanthropy, the Petty Family Foundation was formed as a way for the entire family to stay involved with their community. Since its inception in 2008, the Petty Family Foundation has been dedicated to unlocking the potential of people and organizations by providing financial support where necessary.  Staying true to the Petty family ideals, the main focus has been on supporting organizations that serve children and soldiers.  However, the foundation also remains instrumental in driving forward positive change in the Piedmont Triad community.
