HOMESTEAD, Fla. -- Richard Petty sat in his motorhome Saturday afternoon, admitting he had not talked to Jimmie Johnson about the potential of Johnson tying him and Dale Earnhardt for a seventh Sprint Cup title Sunday in the season-ending race at Homestead-Miami Speedway.Petty said he wasnt avoiding Johnson and doesnt have any animosity in seeing another driver tie his record. They just arent all that close and havent had time to connect.I havent talked to Jimmie, Petty said. Ive been too busy answering questions about Jimmie so I havent got a chance to talk to him.Johnson probably wouldnt have much to ask the 79-year-old Petty about winning seven titles; their paths couldnt be more different. Petty won his seven championships during a stretch of 16 years from 1964 to 1979 but all with a season-long points system.Dale Earnhardt also won his through a single-season points system from 1980 to 1994.Johnson, however, won his in the Chase era, capturing five consecutive crowns from 2006-2010 and another in 2013 when the Chase created a 10-race miniseason to finish the year.You set a record and stuff and can say, You hope nobody ever gets to it, Petty said. You did it under your circumstances. When somebody else does it, they do it under different circumstances. Theres no way to compare what Ive done or what Earnhardt done or what Jimmies doing against each other.After Johnson won his sixth, NASCAR changed the format again, creating a 16-driver system where four drivers get eliminated after the third, sixth and ninth events, setting up a four-driver, top-finisher-takes-all scenario for the championship race.Johnson failed to make the final round in his first two tries, but gets his chance Sunday as he, Kyle Busch, Joey Logano and Carl Edwards vie for the title at Homestead-Miami Speedway.Hes doing his thing in his time, Petty said. Hes beaten all the guys thats out there that hes got to run against. Earnhardt did that with his crowd. And I did that [racing] with the Pearsons and the Allisons and the Yarboroughs and all that.With his two cars not making NASCARs version of the playoffs, Petty seemed ambivalent toward whether Johnson actually pulls off the feat in what would be a record 11-year span.I aint got a dog in this fight, so it dont make [a difference], Petty said. Probably from a PR standpoint, it would be great if he could win it because then every time they say something about him, they will say something about me and Earnhardt.What Petty can claim is that no driver had won more than three titles until he accomplished his fourth and then added three more titles to that record. So would it matter if Johnson wins eight titles? Nine titles?Not really, Petty said. I was the first one to climb the mountain from that standpoint. ... The most anybody had ever won was three.
