Labonte Part III: A Hall Of Fame Journey

Editor’s Note: This is the third of a three-part series on NASCAR Hall of Famer Bobby Labonte. “Unfortunately, being there for 10 years and you’re not winning like you were in 2000,” Labonte told SPEED SPORT. For Labonte, it was an emotional goodbye to the team that gave him a home for years. “I didn’t want to leave, but I didn’t know what to do,” Labonte said. “It looked like the grass was greener on the other side,” Labonte said. “When you think about the whole 50 years of racing, that in itself is totally amazing,” Labonte said. In more than two decades of competition, Labonte’s Hall of Fame résumé speaks for itself. I’d be over the guardrail doing something dumb,” Labonte joked.
