    Adam Petty’s legacy continues to live on.

    Proceeds from the sale of diecast cars of the fourth generation NASCAR driver will be sold to raise funds for the Petty Family Foundation and Victory Junction.

    “After Adam's accident, all of his merchandise was taken off the shelves across the country,” explained Sharon Farlow, Executive Director, Petty Museum and daughter of NASCAR Hall of Famer Richard Petty. “The family and the Museum had this merchandise stored until earlier this year when we began to sell his shirts and hats. We are now ready to sell the diecast cars that we have in stock.

    “Our purpose is to always remember Adam. This is an opportunity for fans to also remember Adam and at the same time make a purchase to give back to the Petty Family Foundation and help aid Victory Junction, a place that we all cherish.”

    The Petty Museum announced Monday it begin selling the original diecast cars of Adam Petty, the fourth generation driver of the Petty family. The museum will sell the original No. 45 diecasts in 1/64 scale and 1/12 scale at a cost of $8 and $45 dollars, respectively.

    Proceeds from sales of the diecast cars will benefit the Petty Family Foundation. The Foundation will then donate funds to support Victory Junction, the camp built in honor of Adam Petty. Additional donations will go into the college tuition fund of Adam's nieces and nephews.

    Petty was killed on May 12, 2000, at the age of 19 after crashing into a wall during a practice session for a race in what was then called the Busch Series at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. He was planning to move up to the Cup series the next season.

    Fans may purchase the diecast cars and all remaining original Adam Petty merchandise at the Petty Museum located at 309 Branson Mill Road in Level Cross, N.C. For more information, call the Petty Museum at (336) 495-1143.
