Bristol Battle - Darrell Waltrip vs. Davey Allison
May 21, 2015
Six races into the season, NASCAR continued to experiment with pit road safety rules after a fatality in the final race of the 1990. When the tour came to Bristol, teams pitted based on where they qualified. Odd number qualifiers pitted on one lap and even numbers on the next and then they alternated each pit stop. And at the first short-track race of the season, the fuses of frustration were lit. Davey Allison and Darrell Waltrip got together, resulting in a penalty for Allison, who was sent to the rear of the field. "I guess it's ok if you're Darrell Waltrip, but not anybody else," Allison said. Waltrip said he was glad Allison was penalized, but the pit road rules were making drivers "do stupid things."
