The final race of Richard Petty's illustrious career went up in flames when he was taken out in a multi-car crash on Lap 95. Petty escaped the burning Pontiac without injury. Despite the extensive damage, the #43 team worked to the bone making repairs to the car, and with only two laps left, "The King" was able to return to the race and see his final checkered flag.
