Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

While every sport has its legendary and unforgettable champions, perhaps no sport other than stock car racing can boast such a multitude of stars that have come from the same lineage. The Jarretts, the Andrettis, the Labontes, the Waltrips — the names go on and on, reflecting multiple generations of stock car racing families that span from the sport's earliest inceptions to the current day. Dynasties: Legendary Families of Stock Car Racing is an all-encompassing look at stock car racing's most influential and long-racing families, from the Flock brothers' crucial roles in the formation of NASCAR to four generations of the Petty family to the legendary Earnhardts racing side-by-side. Packed with full-color and black-and-white archival photographs of the drivers in action, in the pits, and in victory lane, Dynasties is an inspiring tribute to the exciting world of stock car racing.

Synopsis:

"He was with me tonight. I dedicate this win to him."--Dale Earnhardt, Jr. After winning the Daytona 500 a year after his father died racing on the same track.

Racing is in the blood. Perhaps more than any other sport, stock car racing boasts a tradition of dynasties, multiple generations of superstars. From the Pettys and the Jarretts to the Earnhardts and the Labontes, this action-packed, photo-filled tribute honors those who keep it all in the family. Here are the grandfather, fathers, sons, and brothers who have made--and continue to make--motorcar history on the high-banked tracks of the Winston Cup Series. Among those who consistently deliver heart stopping performances in this thrilling dangerous sport are the France family, whose paterfamilias "Big Bill" France founded NASCAR, the Waltrips, Bodines, Andrettis, and many others.
