Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson met up with NASCAR's king on Monday.

While campaigning in North Carolina, Carson made a stop by Victory Junction and was greeted by "The King" Richard Petty. Carson even let Petty get behind the wheel of his campaign bus.

According to a FOX News poll, Carson's ratings have recently climbed to new high. They may be about to get a little higher with fans of "The King" as well.
