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.
The Buick worked well for the Allison/DiGard team and resulted in six overall wins, eighteen top five finishes and twenty-five top ten finishes. Allison edged defending champion, Darrel Waltrip, by 47 points for the 1983 championship.
