STATEMENT FROM TSS CHAIRMAN GRANT LYNCH ON PASSING OF DAVID PEARSON

“All of us at Talladega Superspeedway have the family and friends of our good friend David Pearson in our thoughts. Not only was he one of the greatest our sport of NASCAR has ever seen behind the wheel, but he was a character like no other with his mischievous and joking ways. While he was fun off the track, he was all business when he climbed in the cockpit. He is the only driver in Talladega history to win three straight of our spring 500-mile races (1972-74). He helped set the standard as one of the best drivers ever, and while doing that, made drivers around him better. Being a member of the NASCAR Hall of Fame as well as the International Motorsports Hall of Fame shows you how successful and respected he was. We would like to express our deepest condolences to the Pearson family.”
