NASCAR Hall of Fame Driver Bobby Allison To Appear At Georgetown Speedway Friday, September 30; Stockley Tavern Brings Alabama Legend To Historic Half-Mile As “Grand Marshall”
Bobby Allison, one of the sport’s true legends, will appear at Georgetown Speedway on Friday, September 30.
Thanks to marketing support from Stockley Tavern & Package Store, Allison will serve as the ‘Grand Marshall’ at the event which is headlined by a $3,000-to-win, 25-lap big-block/small-block Modified plus a full card of stock car racing on the fast half-mile clay oval. Allison, a lifelong resident of Hueytown, Ala., won some 84 NASCAR Winston Cup series races and was the series champion in 1983. He conquered the prestigious Daytona 500 on three occasions: 1978, 1982 and 1988. He was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2011 and was also named one of NASCAR’s 50 Greatest Drivers.
