My husband and I are die-hard NASCAR fans. We go to races at Charlotte each year (spring and fall races). We religiously watch the remaining races on TV. I bought this book for my husband. It's hard to get him interested enough in many books for him to take the time and read them. But after giving him this book, every time I look around, he is reading it again and again. I highly recommend this book to any one who is a fan of NASCAR. The stories are funny, inspirational, and just a good way to learn unknown facts about the many characters that are a part of the wonderful sport of NASCAR. Buy the book. It is an easy read that you will want to pick up and read again and again, many selected stories or from cover to cover.
