Dan Knight's Favorite

Dan Knight, who will soon be the pastor of the Westminster Church of God in Westminster, MD (congrats Dan!), suggested his favorite NASCAR Drivers, Bobby Labonte and Elliot Sadler. Today we'll look at Bobby.

Bobby Labonte

Sponsor: Interstate Batteries
Owner: Joe Gibbs
Car: Chevrolet
Birthdate: May 08, 1964
Number: 18

Joe Gibbs was the NFL football coach of I believe, the Washington Redskins. He is a Christian (I think) and outspoken about his faith.

Bobby Labonte began racing Quarter-Midgets in Texas in 1969, then graduated to karts in 1978.

This means he was 5 years old when he started racing!! His brother Terry also races and they are both Winston Cup champions.
