20 years today since we lostAlan Kulwicki.
20 years ago today on April 1, 1993, defending Winston Cup champion Alan Kulwicki and several others tragically list their lives in a plane crash on their way to Bristol for that weekend's race. I was always a big Kulwicki fan,and I still wonder to this day what he might have become and how many titles he may have won had he not been taken so soon. He basically built a Cup team from scratch and won a championship with it just 6 years later, which is remarkable. Rest in peace, Alan.
wow has it been that long !
i was on our corp. jet that night coming home from a business trip in Kansas City, and our pilot heard on the raido that there had been a crash between Knoxville and TRI, had no idea who it was till the next morning
Wow 20 years ago...I was just shy of 30.
I can only imagine how far he would have gone, He probably would have become a powerhouse team owner.
He did it his way.
I was just a kid then, but I remember watching that 1992 final race at Atlanta like it was yesterday. Alan winning the championship, the King's last ride and Jeff Gordon making his debut. What a great time to be a NASCAR fan and watch Alan accomplish what he did with so little. We lost way to much in 1993.
Most everyone knows the incredibile odds Alan Kulwiki overcame.
For anyone to young to remember Alan, the following link (in spite of coming from the bleacher report) provides a good chronicle of Alan's accomplishments.
He should never be forgotten.
Racem hard bud, you always did.
First race I consciously remember watching as a kid... Can still watch it today in amazement. RIP Alan you will NEVER be forgotten.
He will forever live in my Racing-Forums Nic.
