Most overlooked and ignored "great" NASCAR driver and driving force. His social habits and audacity to take on Bill France's kingdom has brought his legacy to obscurity. If France could have his way Turner's name and all reference to him would be expunged from the NASCAR record...my message to the France family..."get over it...you won...he's dead. Let his great driving legacy live on. No one is perfect, especially you guys.
