No joke: Could former NASCAR driver Kyle Petty run for Congress?
According to an article on RollCall.com, former NASCAR driver and now Fox Sports TV analyst Kyle Petty could be a candidate for U.S. Congress in 2014 in North Carolina.
The district would be the one currently represented in North Carolina by Republican Howard Coble, who announced Thursday this would be his last term.
In the article, Petty is listed among several possible Republican candidates for the seat. Petty's father, seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Richard Petty, lost a race for N.C. secretary of state in X1996.
UPDATE: A representative for Petty called Roll Call on Friday morning and said the former NASCAR driver was not planning to run for the U.S. House District 6.
