    Default April 12th in NASCAR !

    Davey Allison wins at North Wilkesboro while hurt.
    Davey was another of the drivers that had talent and a family history of racing too. Always followed him and his Yates Ford. ( even though I was always a MoPar fan )
    I still have a full size poster of Davey standing in front of his Havoline #28 Ford in my closet.

    April 12 in NASCAR: Hurt Allison holds off Wallace at North Wilkesboro
    On April 12, 1992, Davey Allison was playing hurt and driving an overhauled race car.
    Even that wasn’t enough to keep Allison out of victory lane for the spring race at North Wilkesboro.
    The race came a week after Allison hurt a shoulder in a crash at Bristol Motor Speedway.
    With Jimmy Hensley on standby in case Allison needed to be relieved, Allison started seventh in a car crew chief Larry McReynolds had “pretty much rebuilt” overnight, swapping out four shocks, three springs and the sway bar, according to the next day’s Charlotte Observer.
    Hensley was never needed and Allison’s car proved reliable.
    1952: Buck Baker won a 100-mile race in Columbia, South Carolina.
    1958: A night after they finished 1-2 in a race in Columbia, Speedy Thompson and Jack Smith repeated the effort in a race at Piedmont Interstate Fairgrounds in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
    1970: Pete Hamilton led the final 17 laps to win at Talladega.
    1981: It was a day for notable firsts at Darlington Raceway. Bill Elliott started from his first of 55 career Cup poles in the CRC Chemicals Rebel 500. It also saw the first outing of Harry Gant as the driver of Hal Needham’s Skoal Bandit car. It would become a permanent pairing four races later at Dover.

    One has to wonder how many championships Davey might have won if his career wasn’t cut short
