Jimmie Johnson recalls his early interactions with the Petty family.
"Well, for me, obviously he's Richard Petty and we know him from everything he's done in racing from a NASCAR standpoint".
"I was able to see him and connect with him through Adam Petty and Kyle as well back in the ASA days when I was trying to learn stockcar racing as well. Adam and I competed against one another for ASA Rookie of the Year. We moved up through the ranks together. I was able to see him away from the track in a few instances, just was always impressed with how he treated everyone with such respect and had the patience and team to connect and hang out with everybody he was around. "
"My interaction meant a lot to me when I was younger." - www.captainthunderracing.com
