Candy Digital, the next generation digital collectible company, in partnership with Hall of Fame Digital, today announced the upcoming launch of the first-ever digital collectibles featuring Richard Petty. Coinciding with the celebration of Petty’s upcoming 85th birthday, the Track Titans: Richard Petty Collection will showcase iconic imagery of the seven-time NASCAR racing champion across a range of limited-edition digital collectibles, some of which grant owners access to physical Richard Petty memorabilia items and in-person experiences, including a tour of the Richard Petty Museum by none other than The King himself.
“One of the greatest parts of my racing career is being able to find ways to interact with race fans, new and old,” said Richard Petty. “These digital collectibles that we worked on with the team at Candy Digital highlight important moments in my career and I am excited to the reaction from race fans when they see what we created.”
“Richard Petty is known as ‘The King’ for good reason: he’s one of the best to have ever raced. We’re humbled and thrilled that this living legend has entrusted us to create digital collectibles commemorating his storied career,” said Candy Digital’s CEO, Scott Lawin. “Racing fans have a deep reverence for the history of their sport and those who paved the way for the current generation of drivers, and we’re excited to give fans a new way to deepen their connection to one of the all-time greats.”
