In NASCAR Cup Series history, there have only been two drivers that have been fatally injured in Tire Testing and they both happened within 6 months of each other. The up-and-coming drivers, Billy Wade and Jimmy Pardue, respectively finished 4th and 5th in cup series points in 1964.

At the time of their tragedies, Wade was just 34, and Pardue was just 33. Although a great number of parallels can be drawn from the drivers’ stories, they were two very different individuals who had completely different lives.
