Could there be another Allison at Talladega?

Maybe, but not in the way you think. Robbie Allison, 21, son of late racer Davey Allison and grandson of Hall of Famer Bobby Allison, is studying journalism and hopes to cover auto racing.

He also used to race as a child and still wonders what would've happened if he had pursued the sport.

"It crosses my mind," he said during an appearance at Talladega's media center today. "That's all I'll say."

Robbie's older sister, Krista Allison, 23, is working at Disney World, and their mother, Liz Allison, said she is the one who should've raced.

"Krista definitely has the Allison temperament," she said, smiling. "If somebody put her behind the wheel of the car, we'd all be in trouble. Instead of talking about Danica, people would be talking about her."

Davey Allison died in 1993. Robbie was a few weeks short of turning 2, and Krista was 3. Robbie said he appreciates how much NASCAR fans remember his dad.

"I wouldn't know him at all, except through what people tell me," he said.
