This week in the first of what will be two installments of our interview, Larry Pearson talks about growing up as the son of NASCAR icon DAVID Pearson, racing with his brothers Ricky and Eddie, his move up the ladder from Baby Grand to Busch Series competition, his belief that he would’ve won the 1986 Busch Series championship even if Jack Ingram HADN’T been suspended and his ultra-superstitious ways.

We then dig into the September 25, 1986 issue of Grand National Scene.

Geoff Bodine has a good day at Martinsville, right up until his last pit stop. Rusty Wallace’s crew got him out first and he went on to capture the victory, much to Geoff’s chagrin. Ricky Rudd is FURIOUS with Kyle Petty, who uses an ambulance to ease out of the track.

Jack Ingram misses Martinsville, but is still atop the Busch Series standings afterward and Gene Granger has the scoop on all that ailed the Elliotts that season.
