The King and KISS: Richard Petty meets Gene Simmons

We all know what Gene Simmons of KISS looks like without his stage makeup.

But Richard Petty without his trademark Charley 1 Horse cowboy hat and sunglasses?

Or, better yet, how about a picture of Petty -- sans hat and shades -- with Simmons?

That’s what happened Friday at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex, England.

Petty is attending the Festival for the third time and even brought his fabled 1970 Plymouth Superbird with him.

Simmons, meanwhile, was on his way back after he and his band performed at the Graspop Festival, a huge rock gathering in Belgium June 19-21.
