Racing Legends and Young Drivers Talk NASCAR's Past & Present
On Thursday, the Talladega Superspeedway honored the legendary Alabama Gang who dominated the racing scene for two decades. Donnie Allison, Bobby Allison and Red Farmer were all on hand to see the new backstretch named in their honor (The Alabama Gang Superstretch).
The Superspeedway also brought along Donnie Allison’s grandson, Justin, and Grant Enfinger of Mobile who could just be next group to dominate the track. Both young drivers race in the ARCA Series and got a chance to see some of the old cars up front on Thursday and compare them to their rides today. Meanwhile, the members of the Alabama Gang have noticed a trend with today’s drivers and fan relationship and offer up ideas to get it back where it used to be.
