Richard Petty hasn't seen a movie since Driving Miss Daisy

Wednesday October 8th, 2014

Richard Petty may be "The King" when it comes to NASCAR, but in a recent interview he admitted he is not very up on what is going on at the box office.

USA Today asked Petty what the last movie he saw was and his answer shows that he is not much of a cinephile.

Probably Driving Miss Daisy or something like that. That's how long it's been since I've been to a movie. (Laughs) That's what, 20 or 30 years ago? (Actually 25.) I couldn't even tell you.

Petty also talks about the kind of television shows he likes, saying he prefers the History Channel and science programming, especially "outer space crap."
