The Always Fast Sammy Sessions

He started in the last row three times and had a career-best starting spot of 23rd. From the jalopies, Sessions graduated to supermodifieds, where his talent became obvious. It was during that time that Sessions decided he would move to USAC for 1965. He won 22 USAC sprint car features and the 1972 USAC National Sprint Car title. Driving the Shannon Brothers midget, Sessions experienced a nasty flip during a heat race. When the ambulance with Sessions aboard returned to the track, his eye was swollen shut. The diversity fit Sessions perfectly, and he claimed the series championship in 1976.
