The reporters started by briefing about the Alabama Gang founder’s house and said, “The property where NASCAR Hall of Famer Bobby Allison and his son Davey and Clifford not only lived but also prepared many racecars out of there is now for sale. Located in Hueytown, Alabama, the property features roughly 5 acres, two homes, two large two-story garage structures, and a pond.” 

Going back in time, the video also went into detail about the time when the Allison couple moved into the abode and how Allison’s son Davey’s NASCAR team used to operate from the in-house garage. “Bobby Allison and his wife Judy moved there in 1969 and raised their four kids there. The garage has served as the place where Bobby ran his short track cars out, as well as some of his occasional NASCAR Cup Series driver owner efforts. When Davey Allison’s career got going, his NASCAR Busch Series, now NASCAR Xfinity Series team, operated at one of those garages,” the video revealed.

Bobby spent nearly three decades in the historic Alabama house before handing it to his daughter Bonnie. The daughter also appeared later in the video, sharing her memories.

“We moved here in 1969 when I was 7, and then you know as life progresses, moved away a time or two, and was able to come back and live here since 1997. So it’s been amazing to be able to grow up here and then allow my kids to grow up here.”
