David Pearson is recovering from a mild stroke he suffered on Dec. 9.

The family of the NASCAR Hall-of-Famer and three-time champion released a statement saying Pearson “is doing great and well on the road to recovery.

“The stroke affected his left side somewhat but he is able to walk slowly and his arm continues to get better with maneuverability. He has great grip with his left hand so we are very much encouraged.

“He continues to have therapy on both his leg and his arm, and progresses each day. Today, he is 80 to 85 percent back to normal and we expect a full recovery soon.

“Thanks to the NASCAR family and all of his fans and friends and for their support and concern.”

Pearson is second to only Richard Petty on the all-time win list with 105. The 80-year-old Spartanburg, S.C.-native raced from 1960 to 1986 in what is now the Sprint Cup Series. He won the title 1966, 1968 and 1969. In 574 starts, he posted 301 top-five and 366 top 10 finishes for an average finish of 11th. Pearson also enjoyed a remarkable average qualifying effort of 6.2.
