The three-time champion is widely considered the greatest driver of all-time!

November 13, 2018

 

NASCAR has lost one of its all-time greats on Monday night.

David Pearson was a three-time champion and the winner of 105 premier series races. He was 83. His cause of death is currently unknown, though he had been in failing health. His family reported that Pearson suffered a stroke in December 2014.

Pearson was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame back in 2011, the second annual class, and was known as the Silver Fox due to his premature gray hair and veteran status. His career victory total is second only to Richard Petty’s 200. Pearson never competed in every race in a given season and still won three championships.

His wins came in just 574 starts, while Petty's wins came in 1,184 starts.

"I have always been asked who my toughest competitor in my career was. The answer has always been David Pearson," Petty said Monday night in a statement. "David and I raced together throughout our careers and battled each other for wins -- most of the time finishing first or second to each other. It wasn't a rivalry, but more mutual respect. David is a Hall of Fame driver who made me better. He pushed me just as much as I pushed him on the track. We both became better for it."

 Racing tweets about the death of NASCAR legend David Pearson  

They became close friends following their driving days.

NASCAR CEO Jim France said their rivalry was an important building block of the sport’s early growth.

"David Pearson’s 105 NASCAR premier series victories and his classic rivalry in the 1960s and ’70s with Richard Petty helped set the stage for NASCAR’s transformation into a mainstream sport with national appeal," France said. "When he retired, he had three championships – and millions of fans. Petty called him the greatest driver he ever raced against. We were lucky to be able to call him one of our champions.

"The man they called the ‘Silver Fox’ was the gold standard for NASCAR excellence."

Pearson was most identified with the legendary Wood Brothers No. 21 despite never winning a championship in their Ford and Mercury cars.

Between 1972 and 1979, Pearson and the Virginia-based Woods -- led by NASCAR Hall of Famers Glen and Leonard -- won 43 times including the 1976 Daytona 500, a race that saw Pearson limp to the finish after colliding with Petty coming down to take the checkered flag.

I enjoy watching Anime, Science Fiction, and Horror at the movies and on TV. I also read a lot of Science Fiction and Fantasy. I enjoy going to Science Fiction Conventions and Car Shows. I also enjoy watching Drag Racing in person and on TV. When I have a Muscle Car I sometimes take it to the track and race it myself. I sold my last Muscle Car, a 1988 Monte Carlo SS, and I am currently in the market for another car. B-)
