If you like a book full of adrenaline action, 'Driver #8' is the book for you. Follow Dale Earnhardt Jr. as he embarks in his rookie season in NASCAR's premier series. Dale Jr will tell his whole story about his first season. Be there as he travels the long NASCAR schedule. From Daytona's speed weeks, to Homesteads championship weekend, you'll see Dale Jr. Experience victory, anger, and even death. It all starts in DAYTONA, days before the DAYTONA 500. Watch Dale Jr win his first race at Texas, and his other win at Richmond. Watch him try to get back on track after a losing streak. Watch him spend emotional moments with his late father. I would recommend this book to anybody, from lifelong fans, to new fans, or if you¿re not a race fan at all, this book will suit you.

Have you ever wondered what it is like in the life of a Nascar driver? Well, in Driver #8 you get to sit in the passenger's seat for a ride through Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s rookie season in Nascar's top series. This is not his autobiography by far. It will be a while before that becomes realistic. In Driver #8 Dale tells about dealing with family on and off the track. Like on the track he has the voices of his uncle and crew chief Tony Eury and cousin and car cheif Tony Eury Jr. in his ears all race long. Off the track he deals with his mother Brenda, sister Kelley, step mom Teresa, and half brother Kerry. But of coarse both on and off the track his father Dale Earnhardt was always there. After the 2000 rookie season the book ends after a last lap crash in the Daytona 500. 'I completely believed that the dream would come true. Then the last lap of the race turned into a nightmare. I lost the greatest man I knew, my dad.' This is a great book for everyone and anyone, Nascar fan or not. This is one of my favorite books of all time. Why not make it yours.

Once you read this book you wont feel the same about nascar drivers. In this book you feel as if you are sitting right next to Dale Jr as he proceeds to victory lane. In this book you will hear about how much he looked up to his father and what he felt when his father passed away. I would recommand this book to anyone like would like to hear about what he went through in just one year of racing.

Driver #8 by Jade Gurss was a good book to read. This book is about Dale Jr¿s first year in racing. Dale tells about every race, what happens during each race, and if something went wrong with the car. One accident he had was when the brakes failed on him; he tells what he was thinking through all this happening. He also talks a little bit about his life and how he got his big break and started in the Busch. Then he moved up to Nascar racing for his father and he¿s going on from there. I think this is a very good book to read. The reason I wanted to read it was it was about Dale Earnhardt Jr. I recommend this book for any fans of Nascar or of Dale Jr.

This book is the best. You really get into a NASCAR drivers life and feel what they go through every Sunday afternoon. It was so amazing to see all they go through and live with everyday. I was a new fan of racing when I read it and it really helped me understand it alot better.
