Richard Petty drove with a broken neck (twice), but that’s not all
Richard Petty drove with a broken neck not once, but twice during his Hall of Fame career that included a record 200 race wins and a record-tying seven NASCAR Premier Series championships.
Apparently he didn’t even realize it the first time.
But that’s not the half of it.
Petty recently sat down with @TheBuzzer’s Daryl Motte and ticked off a litany of injuries that he nearly always raced through during his 35-year driving career.
There are tough guys in sports — and then there are some really legendary tough guys. We think you’ll agree that Petty is one of the latter after watching the video above.
