there, chances are you’ll want to do it,
too. So imagine Richard, watching
his dad, Lee, powering sideways
through Daytona’s north turn, wheels
digging into sand and shells,
defying the corner’s reputation
as “The Junkyard.” A son would
have to hold his breath and hope
he’d grow up just like dad,
not to mention, grandson Kyle.
Bobby Allison will be hard to beat
with 84 wins over 22 years.
Then, there’s brother Donnie,
who’s in the Motorsports Hall
of Fame. Imagine, Bobby lost
two sons, Davey and Clifford,
as they pursued their passion
for the sport. Photos show a love
of family and racing so strong
the next generation will surely win.
But for NASCAR, no one beats
William Clifton France, senior
and Bill, Jr., founder of an empire,
whose entire family now shepherds
NASCAR, the Speedway and the sport.
