Donnie Allison was always the ?other?brother of the famous NASCAR racing duo. Perhaps only true students of NASCARhistory know that Donnie Allison won ten races in his career; that he postedtop ten finishes in 47 percent of all the races he ever ran; that four of thefive times the Allison brothers ran 1-2 in a race, it was Donnie in front atthe checkers. Fewer still may know that he was Rookie of the Year in the 1970Indianapolis 500. Little is known about Donnie Allison because he wasn?t muchof a talker. Donnie lived by the philosophy that his driving did his talkingfor him. Over the years, his being so tight-lipped led to many misconceptions,twisted tales, and outright falsehoods about Donnie Allison, his racing career,and his life. In Donnie Allison: As IRecall . . ., he sets the record straight on a variety of subjects he?swanted to clear up for years, including the 1979 Daytona 500 and the famousfight in the infield with Cale Yarborough; the win NASCAR tried to steal fromhim and give to Richard Petty; and his ultra-competitive, often-combativerelationship with a racing brother who didn?t like to lose to anybody. ?I?vegot lots of stories to tell, and I want to tell them the way I remember them,?Donnie says. In Donnie Allison: As I Recall. . ., he?s done just that.
