Al Pearce saw his first NASCAR race in 1966. He's been a sportswriter since 1969, covering NASCAR nearly that long for the Newport News Daily Press. He's been in every state except Wyoming and traveled as far as Japan to cover NASCAR, and he can tell you a story about every track and driver on the circuit.
