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.

I can only imagine how far he would have gone, He probably would have become a powerhouse team owner.
He did it his way.

RIP Alan

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.
