In the early 1990s, no driver was more controversial than Ernie Irvan. The bright yellow car of 'Swervin' Irvan was often found at the center of some driver's frustration.
Moving over to Robert Yates' fabled #28 to replace the late Davey Allison seemed to focus Irvan's talent. As the 1993 season started its third race, Irvan found himself nipping at the heels of Dale Earnhardt in points.
But a near-fatal accident during practice at Michigan would sideline Irvan for more than a season. Despite a miraculous comeback, including an emotional win at the track which almost took his life, Irvan could never recapture that magic of the 1993 season.
