When traveling amongst the racing circles of drivers and fans alike, the mere mention of Bobby Allison causes excitement. And rightfully so. He’s not only of NASCAR’s 50 Greatest Drivers, the 1983 Winston Cup Series champion, and tied (so they say) for third on the all-time win list at 84 victories; he is also a true legend of the sport. His accomplishments on the track are still heralded and used as reference points in many record books. Bobby is a self-made legend who earned his reputation through talent and determination. From his humble beginnings in Florida to his arrival in Alabama as part of the legendary Alabama Gang, to his many trips to Victory Lane and his adventures off the race track, Bobby Allison has some wonderful tales to tell. He shares them all in Bobby Allison: A Racer’s Racer. His stories are so numerous that to share them only at racing banquets and among friends and the fortunate fans who happen to run into him just doesn’t seem fair.
When Bobby Allison tells a story, people stop and listen. This book and CD are a collection of Bobby’s favorite stories—told in his own words—that occurred during his illustrious career. His life is filled with enough joyous moments to fill volumes of books. Though the heartaches he has endured in just one lifetime have become the lore of his life and career, that is not the case with the text and audio work you are about to enjoy. This is a compilation of moments that will make his fans and friends smile. Bobby Allison: A Racer’s Racer talks about that famous 1979 Daytona 500 finish, his battles on the track (and sometimes at the track), and how he met his wife, Judy. Of course, Judy shares her version of the truth as well. You’ll also hear Bobby talk about racing with Richard Petty, David Pearson, Dale Earnhardt, and his son, Davey Allison. Remember who took that famous red, white and blue Matador to Victory Lane? Not bad, considering Bobby was never allowed to look under the hood of that car. Before that, there were some pretty raucous days at Bowman Gray Stadium that people still discuss. You‘ll read about the night Bobby and his son, Clifford, got into a real battle with some other folks at a short track the night before a race at Talladega Superspeedway.
