    My Richard Petty Driving Experience

    So I've had this on my bucket list for a while, but never could find the time or coin. My childhood-buddy's dad, a Ret. USAF Colonel, had this on his bucket list as well and took advantage of an RPDE deal that allowed military vets to invite a second person at half-price, so that he could share...
