There is no charge to participate in the cruise-in on Saturday, and everyone is welcome to come and walk the grounds, visit the museum and check out the working speed shop where the Petty’s Garage team builds high-performance Mustangs, Challengers, Chargers, Jeeps and more every day.”

Cruise-in participants are invited to attend an exclusive cookout at 6 p.m. on Sept. 30 at Reverie Place, Richard Petty’s ranch just up the road from Petty’s Garage in Randleman, North Carolina. Admission to the cookout is limited to 200 people.
