Adam Petty

Few families are as synonymous to auto racing as the Pettys, though no amount of history with the sport can grant immunity from its dangers. The son of Kyle and grandson of seven-time Daytona 500 champ Richard, 19-year-old Adam Petty was killed on the track after a wreck in May of 2000. The fledgling racer died instantly when he crashed into a wall at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway.Bing: Where is Richard Petty now?
