Richard Petty

Stock car king Richard Petty hasn't developed a new exit for his Oldsmobile, he's sitting in the trunk kicking our the side of his rear fender after it was pushed in during a high-speed scrape with the wall. Despite his spin out Petty managed a 160.732mph qualifying lap--good enough for the 11th starting position for the Atlanta 500. (Photo by Bettmann Archive/Getty Images)
