That Special First Win

Winning doesn’t come easy in sports. In team sports, you find yourself having a 50/50 chance of coming out on top when you’re competing against a single opponent. Although there are a number of factors that go into a game, at the most basic level, it is difficult to earn a win. Even just the preparation that happens before a game could make the difference in whether a team wins or loses.

'Local Success'

Of the countless drivers in NASCAR history, there are a few from South Florida who have gone on to compete in one of NASCAR’s three national series – Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR XFINITY Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. The most famous amongst the group is 1983 Cup Series champion and three-time Daytona 500 winner Bobby Allison. Allison was part of the famed “Alabama Gang,” alongside brother Donnie, and friend Red Farmer, all of who grew up in Hialeah. The “Alabama Gang” took NASCAR by storm in the 1960s and ‘70s, and ultimately helped pave the way for other drivers in the South Florida area who also had dreams of driving on NASCAR’s biggest stage.

That Breakthrough Moment

Most athletes have a moment in their career that leads to a breakthrough or signals that they have arrived at the sport’s highest level. For many, such as Dan Marino – who in 1983 for the Dolphins had one of the best NFL rookie seasons ever— this moment comes early in their career and often propels them to perform at an elite level moving forward. For others like Kurt Warner, who was undrafted and spent years toiling in other football leagues, the road to success takes longer and is filled with obstacles.

Generation to Generation

A few weeks ago, I discussed the father-son relationships we see among NASCAR’s drivers and the impact that those relationships have on our sport. In that column, I explored how a parent’s passion can be at the forefront of their relationship with a child. I highlighted a number of instances we have seen in the history of our sport, as well as how this trend may continue. Many times however, a driver’s father may not necessarily be as notable as Dale Earnhardt, but will still have the same profound impact on his son as Earnhardt had with his. These relationships between a father and son are endless and last beyond a lifetime.
