best nascar book

I read this book because I am a huge NASCAR fan and I thought it would suit me. This book includes exactly what the cover says it does, inspirational stories of courage, speed, and overcoming adversity. If you aren't usually a NASCAR fan, I think you can still enjoy this book. I also think you can enjoy this book if you aren't a common Chicken Soup reader. While watching coverage of races and reading the stories on the NASCAR drivers, you really only get to see the racing side of the drivers, but in this book, you get to know what some of the drivers are really like. For instance, some wouldn't have thought Gordon would be so charitable and take his show car to a kids' school, who was going blind and take him on a ride. Throughout this book, you hear from nearly every perspective in NASCAR, whether it be the drivers, fans, commentators, reporters, or even people who work in the garages. Something unique about this edition to the Chicken Soups' are the color images inserted in the middle of the book. I thought these were a bit out of place for this books theme because they were mostly images of drivers in victory lane or racing. This book will make you proud to be a NASCAR fan if you are one, and if you aren't, then you will probably begin tuning into the races on Sundays. My favorite story was the one where an older racer by the name of Joe Weaver takes one more lap around the track years after a highway accident left him rehabilitating in a nursing home and stopped him from racing. It was truly an inspirational story. I highly suggest this book to anyone and everyone, it is a great read. By: Tom N.

Wonderful Book

This book is a MUST for any NASCAR fan or anyone who enjoys inspirational stories. There are stories from present drivers to yesterday's drivers, from sports writers to fans whose lives have been touched by the sport of NASCAR. The book will make you laugh and could make you cry. I would recommend this book to everyone! You will not be disappointed with your purchase.

NASCAR Soul revs it up!

I just finished this wondefully touching book. It's filled with stories from the drivers themselves,that you won't hear about anywhere else. There are stories from fans like you and me. I highly recommend it to any true fan of the great sport of racing.

A great book for any reader

Although I am an avid NASCAR fan, upon finishing this book, I came to the realization that you don't even have to know what NASCAR stands for to appreciate the storys and messages conveyed within the pages. I will admit some background on driver deaths would be very helpful information if I didn't know the history as well as I do. ... My favorite story is also one of the shortest in the book. "Special Delivery" will make you think twice about that big brown truck when you see it next time I gauruntee. Definitely the saddest story in the book in my opinion. (page 33- I've had so many people read it I've put the page to memory). If you've ever read Chicken Soup books, you'll know what to expect with the wide variety of topics discussed, and if you're a NASCAR fan, you'll enjoy the NASCAR ties expressed in each story. Definitely worth the price.

Amazing Book

This book is simply amazing. It touches both the heart and the soul. I would highly recommend it for any NASCAR fan, even if you're just a casual fan. This book made me laugh and it made me cry. It's wonderful!
