The late #FireballRoberts would've turned 89 today. Happy Birthday Mr. Roberts.

Edward Glenn "Fireball" Roberts was one of the star pioneers of NASCAR. During his 15 year career, the 2014 NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee recorded 33 victories in NASCAR's premier series including the 1962 Daytona 500.

On May 24, 1964, at the World 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Roberts was involved in a crash with #NedJarrett and #JuniorJohnson. Roberts collided with the inside wall, flipping his car over and bursting into flames. Witnesses of the fiery accident actually claim hearing Roberts screaming, "Ned (Jarrett), help me", from inside his burning racecar. Roberts was airlifted to a hospital with second-and third-degree burns covering eighty percent of his body.

Some how, Roberts survived for several weeks. But on June 30, 1964, he contracted pneumonia and had fallen into a coma. Roberts sadly passed away from his injuries on July 2, 1964. He was just 35 years young.
