Emotional Finish To Third Whelen All-American Title
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Lee Pulliam capped his remarkable season with an equally remarkable victory.
The three-time NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Division I national champion pulled into Victory Lane last Sunday at Southern National Motorsports Park in Kenly, North Carolina, after an emotional week.
The stars were aligned for a storybook finish in the Thanksgiving All-Star Classic at Southern National on Nov. 29. Just three days earlier — on Thanksgiving Day — his wife, LeAnne, was injured in an accident on her way to work. Pulliam, who had never won the Classic, was not even going to race.
