Allison was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2011. He would win the 1983 Winston Cup Championship, 3 Daytona 500 race wins and would be named one of NASCAR's 50 greatest drivers. He is also the only driver to win the Daytona 500 with and without restrictor plates. Early in the 1979 Daytona 500, Bobby, his brother Donnie and rival Cale Yarborough tangled early in the race. Donnie led the second half of the race while Yarborough made up his lost laps through caution periods. By the time there were 8 laps to go, Yarborough reached second place and set his eyes on passing Donnie. Bobby was two laps down and was 1/4 mile ahead of the two rivals as Yarborough and Donnie crashed on the final lap. Richard Petty went by and won the race. Bobby passed the wreckage finished the race and on his way back around Bobby stopped to check on his brother and make sure he wasn't hurt. He pulled over to the wreck site to offer Donnie a ride to the garage area. Cale Yarborough ran up to Bobby and, according to Bobby, Cale was yelling that Bobby was at fault and hit him in the face with his helmet—cutting his nose and his lip. Bobby climbed out and a fist-fight broke out. The fine surprised me, but the fact that it brought NASCAR onto the map makes it all worth every penny." All 3 drivers were fined 6000 dollars each and this put NASCAR on the map as it became one of the most popular events. This is the first Allison suit we have seen and put up for auction. The suit shows nice use with right breast having Union 76, Goodyear, Bobby Allison, and Champion. Left breast has Cam 2 Motor Oil, American Flag, NASCAR Winston Cup Grand National Drivers and Penske Racing. Simpson tagging in collar with 6-80 for month and year suit was manufactured. Suit is properly tagged. JSA ALOA.
