1987 Richard Petty Race Used STP Petty Enterprises Nascar Suit
Iconic NASCAR STP suit worn by the immortal Richard Petty during the 1987 Winston Cup season while driving for his Petty Enterprises team. During the 1987 NASCAR season Petty would score 4 podiums and finish 8th in the overall drivers’ standings.
He was the first driver to win the Cup Series Championship seven times (a record now tied with Dale Earnhardt and Jimmie Johnson), while also winning a record 200 races during his career. This included winning the Daytona 500 a record seven times and notching a record 27 race wins (10 of them consecutively) in one season (1967). Statistically, he is the most accomplished driver in the history of the sport, and is one of the most respected figures in motorsports as a whole. Petty remains very active in the sport as both a NASCAR team owner (Petty GMS Motorsports) in the Cup Series, and owner of Petty’s Garage (car restoration and modification shop) in Level Cross, North Carolina.
During his 35-year career, Petty collected a record number of poles (123) and over 700 top 10 finishes in a record 1,184 starts, including 513 consecutive starts from 1971 to 1989. Petty was the first driver to win in his 500th race start, being joined by Matt Kenseth in 2013. He was inducted into the inaugural class of the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2010. Petty is a second-generation driver. His father, Lee Petty, won the first Daytona 500 in 1959 and was also a three-time NASCAR Champion.
The suit comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity.
