I really enjoyed reading about the 2001 year of Dale, Jr. It was a very fast read, leaving me with wanting more, AND wishing I wasn't at the end.

I loved every word. I hope Jade will write more books about his years with the #8 team.

This book is just as good as the first one (Driver #8) that Jade Gurss wrote with Earnhardt. Once again it was excellent! When he is quoting individuals he doesn't try to "change" the way they said it that much if at all - he leaves the bad grammar and everything (I have read books where they change quotes to correct the grammar and hate it). When you are reading it's almost like you can hear them talking in your head. I read it in one day and loved it just as much as Driver #8!
