David Carl "Davey" Allison was born on February 25, 1961 and was destined for greatness.
He won the 1987 NASCAR Winston Cup Rookie of the Year honor, and in his famous Texaco Havoline Ford Thunderbird for Robert Yates Racing, Davey would go on to win 15 races and 19 in his career. Davey also won the 1992 Daytona 500 after finishing second to his dad Bobby in 1988.
Clifford Allison was born Oct. 20, 1964. He began his Busch Grand National career in 1990, and in his 22 starts finished in the top 10 twice.
On Aug. 13, 1992 Clifford died from head injuries sustained from a crash at the Michigan International Raceway. He is survived by his parents, Bobby and Judy, his wife Elisa, and their three children.
Less than a year later, on July 13, 1993 and just a couple of weeks before his 33rd birthday, his big brother Davey died from head injuries he sustained the day before from a helicopter crash in the infield of the Talladega SuperSpeedway. He was also survived by his parents, his wife Liz, and their two children.
Rest in peace.
