Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

NASCAR Legends traces the story of stock car racing through the courageous, record-breaking drivers who made it the Number One spectator sport in America. NASCAR's 60-year history is rich with varied lore about heroic racers, incredible races, hard-won survival, and love of family. There are tales of amazing races and series, as well as profiles of true NASCAR stars: Bill France; Bobby and Davey Allison; Dale Earnhardt and Dale Earnhardt, Jr.; Tony Stewart; Jimmie Johnson; Cale Yarborough; and Richard, Kyle, and Adam Petty, among other legends of the speedway.

Covering the past and current crop of stars, Robert Edelstein tells the stories that best encapsulate the unique grit and glory of the sport. Edelstein, motorsports reporter and author of Full Throttle: The Life and Fast Times of NASCAR Legend Curtis Turner and NASCAR Generations: The Legacy of Family in NASCAR Racing, goes behind the scenes and under the hood to give readers a close look at the true innovators of racing. Edelstein has interviewed Dale Earnhardt Jr. nearly every year of the driver's career, and gives a clear view of his incredible evolution in the glaring light of fame. In another chapter, he recounts Tony Stewart's remarkable journey toward ultimately winning at his hometown track?the fabled Indianapolis Motor Speedway. And he also examines three of the most boundary-busting races in the sport's history.

This book is written for the fans: it is both a nostalgic look back for longtime followers of NASCAR and a primer on the undisputed greats for new converts just discovering racing. Edelstein's painstaking journalistic work, combined with his encyclopedic knowledge and love of the sport, make NASCAR Legends an essential book for anyone drawn to the magic of the racetrack and its extraordinary history.
