A seven-time NASCAR champ will be at a local Food City Thursday to say "thanks".

Richard Petty will be at Food City on Judge Gresham Road in Gray, Tennessee Thursday between three and five.

The store raised the most funds during a recent Mission Able campaign to benefit paralyzed veterans of America. 

Petty is the spokesperson for the charity.
