Friday night, Richard Petty proved that he has greatness in more sports than just stock car racing. Petty, and his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Bubba Wallace were on hand at a Spectrum event in San Francisco, California.

Also at the event was world renowned Billiards Player Jeanette Lee (also known as the Black Widow). That didn’t intimidate Petty, as he showed off an incredible pool trick shot of his own. And there is video. And it should make your whole day.

Wallace showcased his own video of the momentous shot and he captioned it with a quote, “That’s why I don’t play this game, it’s too easy..” – The King.

So, if you’re keeping score at home, Petty is a seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion who has 200-career wins. And at 81-years old he can probably still whip your ass in a game of pool. As if the legend could grow any larger than it already is for Petty, it did just that on Friday night.
