Richard Petty visits Dandridge
Seven-time NASCAR champion Richard Petty was at the Food City store in Dandridge on Thursday to applaud the good work of the store's employees. Petty is a spokesperson for the Paralyzed Veterans of America and he visited the store because it raised the most funds of any Food City store during this year's "Mission ABLE" campaign to benefit the veterans organization. Store manager Steve Gadbois and his employees recently raised $9,300 for the organization. Petty talked about why he has been involved in the fundraiser for the past ten years. "Sometimes it is hard to raise money for veterans but Food City has done a wonderful job over the last six to eight years and we appreciate what the community has done," he said. The race car driver pointed out that "alot of veterans didn't come back in good shape. It takes everybody to make it work, and it's a way to say thank you veterans so we can do what we want to do." Petty said the organization is completely charitable with no government involvement. "Most racing fans are big on the military anyway so it was just a natural deal for us."
