Overview

The heart and soul of NASCAR is bared in this collection of stories from people intimately involved in stock car racing. Best-selling author Peter Golenbock interviewed a wide range of known and not-so-well-known players in the NASCAR game, ranging from the feisty female racer from the 1950s, Louise Smith, to the legendary champion Fred Lorenzen and announcer Benny Parsons. Golenbock draws incredible stories from these people, and has assembled a collection of stories that tells the tale of not only NASCAR's transformation from a regional backwater sport to an empire, but also brings to light new twists on the most dramatic stories of the sport. Golenbock's interviews pull out the human side of the men and women of racing, offering an intimate glimpse of life on and off the track.
