In the first of what will be three installments of our conversation, Harold Holly talks about the impact of hanging out with his PeeWee football coach … and more importantly … that coach’s race car. Harold breaks into the sport with fellow Alabama native Mickey Gibbs.

A break from the sport doesn’t last very long, and Harold winds up doing math on the run for the late, great Alan Kulwicki before going to work for Bahari Racing and driver Michael Waltrip.

And Harold was RIGHT THERE as Michael endured a REALLY tough month in the spring of 1990.

We then tear into the October 11, 1990 issue of Winston Cup Scene. Davey Allison isn’t quite sure how many laps are left at Charlotte … but goes on to win anyway. Bill Elliott is dominant but falls by the wayside due to a tire issue. Richard Childress Racing crew members escape injury on pit road … and then take matters into their own hands when a tire falls off Dale Earnhardt’s RCR Chevrolet.

Mark Martin gains SOME ground on Dale in the Winston Cup standings … but he could have gained a WHOLE lot more. Morgan Shepherd and Michael Waltrip get hosed out of full-page sidebars and Ricky Rudd REALLY gets hosed in the Charlotte Observer.
