Randleman, North Carolina: Richard Petty Bronze Statue

Randleman loves race car driver Richard Petty, but it gave him a statue with stumpy legs.

127 S. Main St., Randleman, NC
On the northbound side of Main St./Hwy 220 between Naomi and Academy Sts. He faces the street but is easy to miss because he's petite. The Richard Petty Racing Museum is just around the corner.

Richard Petty Statue

The Petty statue is not life-size; it stands less than 4.5 feet tall. It seems that the town should have sprung for a life-sized statue rather than the dwarf that is on display.

Richard Petty Bronze Statue

My mother can give you more information on this one of a kind statue. The statue has an extremely short torso with rather long legs and is lovingly referred to as "Stumpy".


Here is our photo of the less-than-life size tribute -- and actually, his legs are short compared to his torso. Maybe it was the camera lens and angle.
