I was just getting into NASCAR when Alan Kulwicki died just outside of Bristol, Tennesse. I love it when an underdog like Alan can beat the odds, and win a championship like he did.

Later, I attended my first NASCAR race here @ NHIS. I don't recall how Davey Allison did in that race, but I will never forget hearing less than 24 hours later that he was killed in a helicopter crash.

I knew right then that I wanted to build this.

I built the cars curbside. The display is plastic sheet, and the floor is contact paper. I did the sketch with colored pencils. Not having a computer at the time, I had someone do the drivers quotes for me.
