HIGH POINT, N.C. -- On Tuesday, the heir to the Petty racing throne was born at High Point Regional.

Adam Stonewall Christopher Petty is Austin Petty's son, Kyle Petty's grandson and Richard Petty's great-grandson. 

He weighs 5 pounds, 3 ounces. 

"He's got big 'ol feet to reach the gas pedal," Austin said. "I'm pumped to be a father. I've been looking forward to this for a long time."

Adam is named after the late Adam Petty, who died in a NASCAR race May 12, 2000, at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
