It was in this DiGard Buick sponsored by Miller Beer that Bobby Allison won the 1983 NASCAR Winston Cup Grand National Championship. He started the 1983 season in a DiGard Chevrolet, but switched to Buick early in the season when the aerodynamic nose Junior Johnson was running on his Chevrolet was not available.
