Neil Bonnett

http://racing-reference.info/driver/Neil_Bonnett

Neil Bonnet had a widely varied career,- on one hand, he had 18 wins in Winston Cup, but on the other hand, he suffered several major injuries, and unfortunatly, on an attempted comeback tour from a massive 1990 injury, Bonnett lost his life testing for the 1994 Daytona 500.

Between his 1990 head injury and his attempted comeback, Bonnett worked the TV booth, and even had his own show, called Winners, on TNN. Many of us have fond memories of that show, and his broadcasting. On his first race back, in 1993, he ended up flipping and taking out a portion of the catch-fence. After the lengthy delay, Bonnett went to the TV booth, and participated in the broadcast of the rest of the race. It is the only time that has ever happened in NASCAR history. (Interviews, even the occasional one in the broadcast booth, are not actual race broadcasting and thus don't count)
