How many Winston or Nextel Cup championships did Richard Petty win?

Lots of people think it was "7" - wrong! Richard Petty only had 3 Winston Cup Championships , the others were Grand National and others.

I must honorably disagree. Richard Petty won Won 7 WCS, (Winston Cup Series) Championships: 1964, '67, '71, '72, '74, '75, '79. Call it Grand National, or what you want. It was the only stock car racing series at the time he won them. The named changed but it was still Winston Cup. He was racing with the best of the best in every single race. You are just splitting hairs with your answer.

Note that Jeff Gordon no longer has 4 Winston Cup Championships, but 4 NEXTEL Cup championships. Appeasing the sponsor. The same happened when Winston took over completely in 1973. So, the correct answer is either 4 Grand National, 7 Winston Cups, or 7 Nextel Cups. Depends on what time frame one wants to use. For me, its still the World 600 (not the Coca-Cola 600) and the Firecracker 400 (not the Pepsi 400). ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ I must disagree with that. This past Sunday 2/18/2007 Jeff Gordon was interviewed and he stated, "When I go home I see Winston Cups, not Nextel Cups, I'd like to get a Nextel Cup." So it's pretty clear that even though the sponsor might change, the wording on the cup never will, so Richard Petty only has 3 Winston Cups

Once a Series sponsor takes over, the series is then named after that sponsor AND the sponsor then has rights to the series previous to them in name and the record books. Therefore, all the above answers are correct, depending on how you look at it. Most NASCAR insiders will tell you Petty had 7 Nextel Cup Championships even though the trophies will say something different.

The answer to this question is 7. Jeff Gordon is only 3 championships away from tying Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt Sr with 7 championships. It DOES NOT matter what the series is called. The number of championships always stay with the series no matter what their name changes to. You supposed NASCAR fans do not have a clue what your talking about.

How can a fan contact Nascar driver Richard Lee Petty?

Hi, my name is Joann Kirby. My grandson has CP. He is in a wheelchair with no use of his limbs. Can say a few words? He is big, big fan of NASCAR. His room is filled with things we have collected. He just went under a 11 hour operation and is recovering. I got a few people to send him get well wishes and some things he thinks it awesome. We try to get him all the support we can. If you could get Richard Petty or anyone to send him a card or picture, I would be ever so grateful. He is just a wonder child. We met someone last year who said they could customize his chair and fly him to a race. Also, to get him into Richard Petty's camp. They took pictures of his chair too. And we never heard a word from them, so I have been trying to make it up to him. And he gets so excited over everything I get him from NASCAR. Thank You, my grandson's name is Christopher Bravette, address, 24 Forest Hill Drive, Voorhees, NJ 08043. You could send an e-mail at joannkirby.com with a simple greeting. I would very thankful. God Bless! Grandma.
