With just a few laps left in the 2001 Daytona 500, front-runner driver Michael Waltrip was already anticipating victory, something that he had not savored in 462 previous NASCAR races. As a member of the Earnhardt team, he had shared in the family's aura of greatness; now, he would experience triumph himself. Then, tragically, unexpectedly, one lap from the finish, a crash behind him took the life of Dale Earnhardt, his close friend and the only father figure he had left. That sudden fatal accident would change Waltrip's life even more than his triumph had. This heartfelt memoir takes you behind the wheels of a dangerous profession and inside the life of a person you can't help but admire.
