Eddie Bierschwale (born June 29, 1959) is a former NASCAR Winston Cup driver from San Antonio, Texas. He made his Cup debut in 1983[1] in a car owned by his father Don.[2] In 1985 he got a full-season ride with D.K. Ulrich and stayed with the team until the end of the 1986 season when he was let go. After bouncing from team to team in 1987 he returned to his father's team in 1988 and participated in a partial schedule with them until he retired from racing in 1992. His best Cup finish was a 10th in the 1989 Daytona 500 (he started the car, but jumped out of the car in favor of Kyle Petty, who had failed to qualify for the race in his No. 42). Bierschwale often raced in the No. 23.
