    sad Lynda Petty, the Queen of Nascar, dies at 72

    Prayers for The King and family.

    Lynda Petty, the wife of seven-time NASCAR champion Richard Petty, died Tuesday after a long battle with cancer. She was 72.

    She was diagnosed with central nervous system lymphoma four years ago.

    Richard and Lynda Petty were married in 1959, and she played an instrumental role in her husband's early racing career. Richard Petty, who holds the Sprint Cup record with 200 victories, told USA TODAY Sports in 2008 that Lynda would feed their four children and the pit crew from the back of a 1960 Chrysler sedan parked in the infield.

    "We finally got a station wagon in 1969," Richard Petty said. "She said she thought she'd died and gone to heaven because it had all that room for the kids and the food."

    Bless her loving heart and may she rest in peace. They got married the same year I was born.

    The thrill of my eleven year old life was getting to sit in the King's driver's seat after the spring race at Richmond Speedway (now Richmond International Raceway!) in March of 1970. The Petty team was letting (and helping) any kid who wanted to climb in - one at a time, of course. They were always the most gracious of the Grand National teams to the fans...

    Take care Lynda. Say "Hi" to Lee and Adam for us.
    Go Dawgs!
