A Night with The Alabama Gang

October 16, 2017 in Birmingham , AL

5:30 - 7:30 p.m.


Members of the legendary “Alabama Gang” – Red Farmer, Bobby Allison, Donnie Allison, and a few of their local racing friends – will be at Vulcan Park and Museum on Monday, October 16 for an evening of storytelling and fun. Like a “caravan of gypsy’s” these original members of the Alabama Gang traveled throughout the southeast in the late 1950’s and 60’s placing one, two, and three at almost every track.  While Bobby and Donnie Allison raced at the highest level in the racing circuit, Red Farmer has remained close to his roots. Farmer still races on Saturday nights at the Talladega short track and calls Hueytown, Alabama home. Bobby and Donnie no longer race and live in North Carolina, but they have never forgotten their deep Alabama roots. Join us for this unique opportunity to hear from the heroes of the glory days of auto racing and see a few of the cars that made them famous. Come prepared to ask the questions you’ve always wondered about. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., Program begins at 6:00 p.m.
