IN PATIENTS WHO'D STARTED SMOKING AS TEENS, THAT DAMAGE WAS GREATER THAN THOSE WHO'D STARTED LATER IN LIFE. WIENCKE:We think they may be more sensitive to the toxic and carcinogenic effects of tobacco smoke at that time. SO STOPPING TEENS FROM EVER STARTING IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER.

((Four generations of Petty's united to show off the latest growth at Petty Enterprises. What began in 1949 as a dirt floor, single room race shop with patriarch Lee Petty at the controls, is now a 17 building complex that houses two Winston Cup teams, a Busch team and a Craftsman truck series team. ((RICHARD PETTY:)) ((KYLE PETTY:)) ((JIMMY HENSLEY:))
And afterall, being happy is what it's all about. If you don't belive these guys - just this to the Petty Matriarch, Richard's Mom - Elizabeth.)) ((ELIZABETH PETTY:))
