Legendary NASCAR driver Bobby Allison will serve as Grand Marshal for Oval Day’s at New Hampshire Motor Speedway’s Twentieth Annual Vintage Celebration.
Bobby Allison, a former NASCAR Sprint Cup series driver was named one of NASCAR’s 50 greatest drivers. He began his career in 1966, after winning 85 races. Bobby retired in 1988.
Known as the “Alabama Gang,” Bobby and a few friends set up shop in Hueytown, Ala. where their passion for racing came alive.
Bobby’s ties to the New England region date back to the mid-sixties, where he captured his first NASCAR Cup win at Oxford Plains Speedway in Oxford, Maine.
“Bobby Allison personifies everything good about being a race car driver,” said Jerry Gappens, executive vice-president and general manager of the speedway. “From Daytona to Indianapolis and hundreds of small shorts tracks in between, Bobby has driven anything on four wheels at almost every race track in the country. Even though his driving days are over, he remains one of the greatest ambassadors of our sport. It’s an honor to have Bobby join us for our Twentieth Anniversary Vintage Racing Celebration.”
