I think, I don’t know if it was last year or the year before, he made like 40 copies of my grandmother’s cookbook. And he made it into a hard copy book and he gave all of us my grandma’s cookbook, so it was like really cool. I display it in my kitchen because grandma was obviously a big part of my childhood and a big part of everything Petty up until 2014 when we lost her.

Just cool stuff like that. I mean, I’ve got more Richard Petty stuff from Richard Petty for Christmas than anything.”
