    I have never been a huge fan of, NASCAR but this book might have

    I have never been a huge fan of, NASCAR but this book might have changed that. The time that Thompson took to give you background information on every single topic that is brought up that you might not know about. I really liked the description and back story that he included to every city and track that was mentioned. Another aspect of this book that I also liked is how the book is set up going chronologically through events jumping to multiple people and showing how they contributed to the sport or how they were an influence on it. Overall I am amazed at the amount of research and fact that are included in this book and I would recommend it to anyone with an interest in NASCAR or just cars in general.

    The untold history of NASCAR. Great writing.

    I have been intimately involved in NASCAR for 50 years and although the names Parks, Vogt and Byron were familiar, I never knew their stories. This book is a history lesson on more than NASCAR with relevant side-stories about Ford, moonshining, WWII and the poor depression-era South.

    more from this reviewer

    Driving with the Devil.......

    I found this book to be a book that I could actually read all the way through without being bored. It definitely showed the hard work and determination needed to bring Nascar to where it is a multi-billion dollar sport today. I definitely recommend reading this book if you like stories about people who are thrill seekers. From moonshinig to racing, you will be eager to turn to the next page.
