Kyle Petty says his father, seven-time NASCAR champion Richard Petty, is coping as best he can after losing his wife, Lynda, last month. ''He's doing pretty good, he's used to going to the race tracks and being at the race tracks alone, but he's not used to being at home and being alone,'' Kyle Petty told the Associated Press on Friday. The King's son won the pole for Saturday's Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race in Long Beach, Calif., and addressed his father's reaction to the loss of Lynda Petty. "They were together 57 years and even though he spent 50 of those 57 years on the road, according to him, at race tracks, it's been a lot harder and a lot tougher (than he thought)," Kyle Petty told AP.

The last time Gordon saw Victory Lane at the historic South Carolina track was after winning the 2007 Dodge Avenger 500.
