The Fight That Launched NASCAR
Milwaukee Resident Recalls Legendary Racing Event
Any time you can get David Hobbs to say a "combover got disturbed very badly," it's worth your time!
The Milwaukee resident, racing legend and NASCAR commentator had a front row seat for arguably one of the biggest moments in that sport's history in the last 35 years.
Hobbs helped call the 1979 Daytona 500, the first live NASCAR race. It's known just as much for the fight between Cale Yarborough and Donnie Allison in the turn 3 infield grass, as it is for the race or anything else. And with a snowstorm hitting the Midwest, a captive and huge audience let all the drama unfold.
