Even after more than two decades, nobody has been able to forget that Liz Allison was once married to one of NASCAR’s most famous drivers Davey Allison. The one person who will not forget and has never forgotten is Liz Allison herself. She was once married to Davey Allison from 1989 to 1993 until he died and left her a widow with two young kids to take care of. The world sympathized with her and grieved at her tragic loss. The world saw a young widow with two fatherless kids. However, Liz Allison was made of sterner stuff and she took life by its horns and fought every problem that was flung at her. Today she herself is a source of inspiration to many. Here are some details from Liz Allison’s wiki.
A Freak Accident
Allison was in love with Davey and she has been constantly in the news as a TV reporter, TV presenter, book author, and a radio show host. She was in the limelight in May 2019 because she was involved in a “freak accident” and that made all her family, friends, relatives and her fans very worried and concerned about her wellbeing.
Out of the Woods
People were in the dark about the nature of her injuries until her daughter Bella took over her mother’s very eagerly followed Twitter account and wrote:
“Hey y’all this is Bella. My mom was in a freak accident on Tuesday and she has a concussion. She’s on bed rest. Just say a little prayer for a quick recovery for her!”
It was only after this tweet came online on May 10, 2019, that all the people who were worried about her heaved a sigh of relief. Allison had a concussion but good medical care, her family’s love, and her own strong determination pulled her out of the hospital bed and now she is fine and back to her winning ways.
An Amazing Career
Allison’s interest in car racing began because of her emotional and romantic involvement with Davey but she has maintained her passion for it even after all these years. She has appeared on shows like The Today Show, Fox, Friends, ABC 20/20 and CNN in her career. Not just that she is also the author of 13 published books on NASCAR racing.

She Stands Accused!
However, not everybody thinks of Allison as a saint. There has been talking about her having had an affair with the married country music star Joe Diffie. People claim that she broke his marriage to his wife despite knowing that he had two children with one suffering from Down’s syndrome.

Two of these children are the children of Davey Allison who Liz was earlier married to.
