Overview

Tim Flock once raced with a monkey in his car. When the 1961 Western North Carolina 500 was declared over after only 250 miles because of a deteriorating track surface, 4,000 fans held the drivers hostage. Driver Lloyd Seay was shot and killed by a cousin in a dispute over payment for a load of sugar used in their moonshining operation. One of NASCAR’s earliest tracks, in Daytona, Florida, used a beach for one straightaway and a public highway for the other. Containing fifty lists of the top-ten drivers, tracks, finishes, technological innovations, and so on, NASCAR's Most Wanted™ will inform and amuse diehard fans and newcomers to the fast-growing, always exciting world of stock car racing.
