Remember that well. We didnt think he was coming back from that one. Tough SOBMy very first Cup race, I was 5 years old, was the 1988 Miller High Life 500. That day will stick with me forever. Not only did I attend that race but I (with the help of my grandmother) also sent him a get well card when he was at the nearby Lehigh Valley Hospital recovering. Very few people expected Bobby to recover as well as he did. Same with Irvan.
That was it. I remember Petty hitting the wall pretty good and that bummed us out.M

I believe it. He loves his fans and talking about racing.
