Mega gallery: Richard Petty's NASCAR Superbird hits the blacktop

Richard Petty is bringing his mind-blowing Superbird NASCAR racer to the Festival of Speed this year, and to return the compliment GRR sent Andy Craig to North Carolina to check out the fabulous Richard Petty Museum – and to meet the guys responsible for keeping the Petty machinery in fine fettle. 

Andy wasn’t quite expecting the road-trip of a lifetime, but that’s what he found himself experiencing. You can read all about his ride in the stupendous Superbird here.

Luckily ace motorsports snapper Jamey Price was on hand to record the moment for GRR with this fabulous set of photographs. 

Scroll through the gallery above, and you’ll see what we mean. Oh, and if you’re thinking we should have shot some video? Watch this space…
