Richard Petty with his famous cowboy hat and sunglasses

Nascar driver Richard Petty flashes his signature smile, while wearing his also-signature wraparound sunglasses and black cowboy hat with fancy feathers, on July 7, 2006. This was at the Paddock at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in Chichester, England - 07 July 2006. It would be fun to hear "Chichester" pronounced with a classic Southern drawl, one must say. Richard Petty was born in 1937, so he turned 69 the year this photo was taken.
