2005 Prostate Cancer Speakers - Richard & Kyle Petty

Evansville Cancer Center was delighted to present the fourth annual prostate cancer awareness program "The Race Against Prostate Cancer with Richard & Kyle Petty".

Richard Petty, ‘The King of Racing’, holds more records than any other driver in NASCAR history. Following in the footsteps of his grandfather, Lee and his father, Richard, Kyle has been a fixture on the NASCAR circuit for more than 20 successful years as a driver behind the wheel of car #45. But life isn’t always about being the guest of honor in Victory Lane - it’s about dealing with what happens every day.
