My family had a place on Lake Bowen (about 10 miles North of Spartanburg S.C.) Pearson had a wicked fast boat that would appear here from time to time. I always heard that he had to sneak it out when the lake wardons weren't patrolling because the horsepower rating for boats was only 150.
I grew up pulling against him, because I love the 43 and loved to hate the #21, but I sure wish I could see him race one more time...against the King, but y'know, now it wouldn't matter who finished first. David, you are a true hero and legend.
Hey "little David"...I don't remember having to join a group and sign in when I would see you at Cottons, or see you in the Charlotte airport. I used to roam in and out of that garage when in was in SPTG.,and you piloted 1964 #6. Extend my condolences to Cotton, and wish him well for me...

In total GN and Winston wins, Richard posted the most wins, but David's percentage was much higher.
In the late 50s and into the early 60s, Cooumbia Speedway bristled with David, Bobby Isaac, Ralph Earnhardt and Ned Jarett seemingly swapping victories.
I spoke with David this week (today is Saturday, April 20) and he told me that Cotton Owens is not doing well at all...but David hopes to join us at the 52nd South Carolina Athletic Hall of Fame ceremony on May 14 as, among others, we posthumously induct one our best friends...Jim Hunter...into the great organization. David and Cotton are both past inductees. and along with Bud Moore, Cale Yarborugh, Buck and Buddy Baker. The SCAHOF honors men and women in all sports who are from the state or contributed athletically in great measure to it's fame.
Dad worked with David for years...some of you might remember him if you followed David in the 60's his mane was "Pop" Eargle...
My Dad worked for Holman Moody. I remember him telling me he would tape gum to Pearson's dashboard before a race. I think it was four sticks. And he would open one end just enough that all David Pearson would have to do is slide it out.
Just for David , " The Silver Fox "
Will you ever tell us what you told Trevor, in those quiet laid back " talks " you had with that Special young man, last February ????/
they have trouble calling you " The King " butwhat can you honestly call the man who beat The King ??????
I have to call him Mr. Pearson !!!!!
love ya forever !!!!!!
