Davey Allison Memorial Park -  Talladega, Alabama

Davey Allison won his first NASCAR Winston Cup race at his "home track", the Talladega SuperSpeedway on May 3, 1987.  He was the only driver in NASCAR Winston Cup History to win two races and five poll positions in his first season on the world's most competitive racing circuit, and was honored as the series' Rookie of the Year.

In 191 races spanning only five complete NASCAR Winston Cup season, Davey earned 19 victories, including the 1992 Daytona 500, to rank fifth among active drivers.  He was the first driver to win The Winston all-star race two years in a row, and was honored as the 1992 Driver of the Year by the National Motorsports Press Association.  In 1993, Davey brought special honor upon himself as winner of the International Race of Champions series.

The motorsports world, Texaco, and surrounding communities, will always remember Davey as a true Alabama Sports Legend, who not only made outstanding contributions to the sport of professional automobile racing, but who also brought honor to the State of Alabama as result of his personal and professional excellence.

This Park is dedicated to the memory and accomplishments of Davey Allison: husband, father, son, Friend and Driver of the #28 Texaco Ford  Thunderbird.  Known as the one of NASCAR's greatest champions, Davey's outstanding contributions to the sport of professional automobile racing during his early career laid a foundation of promise for years to come.  Tragically, that promise was to go unfulfilled upon his untimely passing on July 13, 1993.

Davey Allison always emulated the proud, fiercely competitive tradition of racing's famous "Alabama Gang" led by his legendary father Bobby.  Beyond his competitive and indomitable winning spirit, a tireless devotion to his sport and its fans was an abiding kindness and compassion for all.

Even as we mourn his death, we give thanks unto God for the life of David Carl "Davey" Allison.  For his friends at Texaco, his family and fans alike, it was an honor to be associated with one of the finest young men we have ever known.
