Overview

FEBRUARY 18,1979. The Daytona 500. It didn't look anybody would catch Cale Yarborough or Donnie Allison, not even the great Richard Petty. Then, on the final backstretch, the bumping started. Yarborough cut low, trying to pass Allison. Allison dug in and pushed Yarborough into the infield dirt. What happened next changed everything for NASCAR —a spectacular collision, a nationally televised fistfight between two star drivers, and one of the wildest finishes in sports history.

And that was just the beginning.

He Crashed Me So I Crashed Him Back allows us to relive one of the roughest and rowdiest seasons in racing, before NASCAR was the big money spectacle it is today. Drawing on exclusive interviews with drivers, crew chiefs, fans, and owners, Mark Bechtel tells the extraordinary sage of the most important year in NASCAR history and the untamed origins of modern stock car racing.

    Loved this book!

    Author Mark Bechtel has made stock car racing an incredibly interesting read, especially for those of us who are new to the NASCAR nation. I can only imagine how much a veteran enthusiast or insider would appreciate this book. I'm looking forward to seeing what he tackles next.
