Another bad day for Kyle Petty

Recommended Posts

While racing at Sears  Point International raceway, Kyle was clipped on the right rear  by Johnny Benson. Benson had a tire go down which forced him into Petty's  car, and caused Petty to lose control. Petty glanced off a retaining wall smashing the left front of his #44 Pontiac.

Wow, Rick. Awesome job on simulating bent sheetmetal. Would love to watch your process. Was that a particular crash from a particular race?  Also, great job on the flatbed.

The process was rather easy heat from a lighter and bending it by  hand/and small sprew  cutter's. The roll back is a die cast bought off ebay. Made the back story up about Sears Point , But being a road course race one never know's.

It sure looks authentic to me.     On both the car and flatbed

Probably one of Kyle's "better" days, never was much of a driver.  Beautiful work on that damage, looks very realistic.
