Description

Longtime Fox Sports broadcaster and NASCAR prerace show host Chris Myers demonstrates that racing embodies the best of what makes America great: our competitive spirit; our will to win; our love of pageantry, heroes, and tradition; our willingness to face risks and build for the future. This unique book is a love letter to the NASCAR community -- from an outsider turned insider who "gets" what NASCAR fans and the world of NASCAR is all about. NASCAR has been slighted in the mainstream media for too long. Now, everyone will see that NASCAR and its fans truly represent what's best about our country. Myers takes fans to track-side, places them in the car and in the middle of the action and shares the sports finer moments, its most challenging times and introduces fans to a world that is so deeply cherished by all fans of motorsport.
