David Pearson (1934 – 2018) was one of NASCAR’s first superstars. He was nicknamed “the Fox,” and later “the Silver Fox,” for his cunning and calculated driving. Over the course of his 27-year NASCAR career he accumulated 105 victories and a mountain of accolades. He was Rookie of the Year in 1960, three-time Series Champion (1966, 1968, 1969), and inducted into several motorsport halls of fame. In 1999 40 NASCAR insiders selected him as Sports Illustrated’s Top Stock Car Driver of the Twentieth Century.

He died Monday in his hometown of Spartanburg, South Carolina, at the age of 83.
