Another Trip To Talladega Brings Memories Of Davey Allison

As the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series comes to the Talladega Superspeedway this weekend, I for one can’t help but think about Davey Allison. Allison was only 32 years old when he died in a helicopter crash at the facility in 1993. Being part of the Alabama Gang, he had his share of triumphs and tragedies before his death.

Below is a special from 1993 ESPN put together after we lost my hero growing up. I still remember vividly finding out and watching this very special with tears in my eyes.
