Aside from being a driver in NASCAR's elite series, Kyle Petty has also garnered quite a reputation as a business executive and a community leader.
One of the very few third-generation athletes in American sports, Petty had a variety of options for a career. As a winning athlete in high school, Petty was recruited by several colleges for football and baseball scholarships.
A country music career later became an option with more than one Nashville agent saying he had "what it takes" to make it big. But racing remained his first choice.
In 1979, Petty first climbed behind the wheel of a stock car in major competition, visiting Victory Lane in the Daytona ARCA 200-miler -- his first major league competition.
Petty drove five Cup races that year, notching the first top-10 of his career. A year later, he started 15 races -- picking up top-10 finishes in six of them -- before running his first full schedule in 1981.
