    The nummber 3 car

    The book At The Altar of Speed by Muntville, Leigh Is the life story of Dale Earnhart all up through his racing career. The book describes his life after and how it was effected by his career and how he became a racer growing up. I recommend this book because it talks about how he grew up with is family and the hard times and the inspirations he got from his family. When he race it shows how his fellow racers talk about how they feared him but yet showed respect for him. Also showed how he was when he was not racing how he was a good funny, friend and a good farther.

    Very good book

    At The Altar of Speed by Leigh Montville is about Dale Earnhardt and Neil Bonnett and how they became friends and started racing together. The book talks about how his father Ralph would race to pay the house bills, and would take out loans to pay for parts for the car. It discusses his personal life regarding his marriage, divorce, and remarriage. Dale tells about the good times and the bad times in his life and how he was brought up. It describes how he got his ¿Intimidator¿ name and every other name in this sport of racing. I really enjoyed reading this book and learning more about Dale Earnhardt. I would recommend this book to any race fan that liked or didn¿t like Dale Earnhardt.
