Davey Allison

18 years ago today, he passed away.

He was my first true hero, I was only 6 at the time so thinks hurt more now than they did then. Miss him dearly. Had he lived, I'm not sure I would have been a Tony Stewart fan, but I'm confident that had he lived I would have been pulling for one of the greatest drivers auto racing had ever seen.

It doesn't seem possible that it has been 18 years since Davey passed. It was longer then that when Clifford passed. The Allisons were my favorites for years and I just loved their attitudes. Now the elder Allisons were really Old School and played a big part in making NASCAR what it is today. I've always remembered Cliffords accident as it happened here in Michigan at the Michigan International Speedway.
