NASCAR Ernie Irvan has been announced as a speaker for this summer’s Faith & Family Night that’s happening at PeoplesBank Park on June 18. Irvan is expected to talk about the role his faith played after he was involved in a terrible accident and how it helped him to endure a difficult recovery in order to return to his sport again. That evening the racer will be available that evening to meet and greet with fans, as well as provide an autograph session too, in which one autograph is permitted per person. The ballpark that Faith & Family Night is happening at will have a few festivities going on throughout the facility and end the evening with a spectacular fireworks show.
The Salinas, California native won his race race in 1968 at the age of nine in a driving kart competition, and just years later he managed to win the California Championship in 1974 at the age of 15. Racing continued to be a big part of his life throughout his high school years and he even missed his graduation ceremony to make it to a race. In the 1980s, Irvan met a car builder by the name of Marc Reno who then became his partner in his racing ventures which eventually allowed him to make his first Winston Cup debut driving a No. 56 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. From then on, he kept taking part in various races and eventually made a great name for himself in the NASCAR world, especially during 1992 when he won Sonoma, Daytona, and Talladega all in that year.
Irvan will be attending and speaking at this year’s Faith & Family Night at PeoplesBank in June to talk about some of his career highlights, as well as his famous injury that required a lot of strength to heal from.
