NASCAR Legends Richard & Kyle Petty Dedicate Muscle Car Forever Stamps at Daytona 500

Raw power got a stamp of its own today when seven-time NASCAR National Champion Richard Petty dedicated the America on the Move: Muscle Cars Forever stamps.

Petty, joined by his son Kyle, dedicate the limited-edition stamps at the Daytona International Speedway where “King Richard” won a record seven Daytona 500 Championships.

Typically equipped with big, powerful engines, these high-performance vehicles began roaring across America in the 1960’s. The stamps feature five iconic muscle cars: the ’66 Pontiac GTO, the ’67 Shelby GT-500, the ’69 Dodge Charger Daytona, the ’70 Plymouth Hemi ‘Cuda and the ’70 Chevelle SS.

The Muscle Cards Forever stamps are the third issuance in the America on the Move stamp series. Tom Fritz of Newbury Park, CA, created the artwork under the art direction of Carl T. Herrman of North Las Vegas, NV. Other issuances in the series, ‘50s Sporty Cars (2005), followed by ‘50s Fins and Chrome (2008), were the work of artist Art Fitzpatrick of Carlsbad, CA.
