The death that changed Nascar
Fifteen years ago one of Nascar's rising stars was killed when the accelerator of his car got stuck and he crashed into a wall at a racetrack. Adam Petty was 19. His death led to new safety features being fitted in the sport's cars." He was just a kid, full of personality, full of life, always smiling, always joking, always with a big thing of bubble gum in his mouth," says Kyle Petty, Adam's father. "He was always blowing bubbles."
