28 Car Returns To Dega: Davey Allison’s widow talks about organ donation importance

28 car returns to Dega: Davey Allison's widow talks about organ donation importance

TALLADEGA, Ala. (WBRC) - Talladega races are this weekend, and if you’re a longtime NASCAR fan, you’re going to notice something very familiar.

Davey Allison’s car and number are going to be back at Dega with a special message.

It’s been almost 28 years since Davey died from injuries sustained in a helicopter crash at the Talladega Superspeedway in 1993.

Allison wasn’t only a legend on the track – he was also a legend for giving the gift of life to others through organ donation. Donor son and NASCAR driver Joey Gase will be honoring Davey and his legacy by driving the #28 car (Davey’s number) during the 2021 Geico 500 at Talladega Superspeedway.

Please join us in honoring Davey by registering to be an organ, eye and tissue donor.
