Ernie Irvan Booking Agent Details

Ernie Irvan is a retired NASCAR driver who is best remembered for overcoming the odds after a horrific race crash at Michigan Speedway in 1994 that left him battling for his life with lung and brain injuries after doctors gave him less than a 10% chance of surviving. Irvan recovered and made his first start after the crash in October of 1995 and finished 6th at the Tyson Holly Farms 400. He claimed his first victory after the accident the next year at the Jiffy Lube 300 and put an exclamation point on his comeback when he won the Miller 400 at Michigan Speedway in 1997 on the same track where the accident occurred.

In total for his career, Irvan won 15 Winston Cup races with 124 finishes in the top 10 along with 22 pole positions. Among his wins included the 1991 Daytona 500 and 1993 Winston 500. In 1999, Irvin retired from racing two weeks after being involved in another accident exactly five years from the date of the first. Irvan first got into racing in California in the late 1960’s when he competed in kart races at nine years old. He began racing stock cars at 16 years old in 1975 after finishing second in the U.S. the year before at the national kart racing championships. He made his Winston Cup debut in 1987 at the Wrangler Jeans Indigo 400. In recognition of his achievements, Irvan won a host of honors and accolades, including…
