Nineteen times he'd failed, often astoundingly, sometimes magnificently. And so it was an old man in Earnhardt's car in Victory Lane, fifty years to the day after the first NASCAR race on the sands of Daytona Beach. The cobalt eyes were weary. The hard face was ashen, suddenly lined with wrinkles beyond his forty-six years. Now it was as if all the sorrow of those nineteen losses had deluged him at once. Virtually every member of every team had lined up to slap hands with him as he drove by. It was the most monumental salute in the history of American motor racing. Earnhardt drove into the infield grass in front of the pit road, and across the enormous painted word "Daytona," he did the most artistic "doughnuts" ever by a victor-he spun and whirled his car until the tires gouged out of the grass a gigantic "3" in earthen colors. And then in Victory Lane all the heartbreak came in one last crashing wave... For a generation Ed Hinton has been witness to what may be the most truly American sport of all. Once loved by those mostly living south of the Mason-Dixon line, NASCAR has captured the imagination of an entire nation. Television ratings are skyrocketing, and names like Jeff Gordon and the late Dale Earnhardt are part of the American fabric. Now, after years of covering heart-stopping races, gasoline alley power struggles, and family feuds, Hinton delivers the book on racing that America has been waiting for... DAYTONA Hinton takes us on a full-throttle history of Daytona from the days when well-healed daredevils and tycoons held speed contests on the beach to Daytona's eventual overthrow of the Indy 500 as America's premier racing event. Along the way he chronicles the personal side of the sport, including the rise and fall of "the King," Richard Petty, the tragic dynasty of the Allison family, the rags-to-riches story of Dale Earnhardt, and some of the sport's most vicious, on- and off-the-track rivalries-among racers, owners, crew chiefs, and carmakers themselves. With finely etched prose, Hinton straps us into a state-of-the-art racing machine to experience unimaginable power held with a feathery touch, while waging the nerve-racking war for space, speed, and track. He takes us through the garage area on a Daytona 500 morning, where cars "like monstrous patients in intensive care" are given final tunings by specialists and the air shudders with the sound of unmufflered engines reaching RPMs that would explode your family car. And he takes us into those moments that stay in the mind forever: moments of split-second victory or defeat, moments of unbelievable skill and courage, and, tragically, moments of death. Ultimately, DAYTONA is a story about people: fathers and sons; teammates and competitors; the visionary who invented the sport, Big Bill France; the boy genius Jeff Gordon, who overthrew the Intimidator, Dale Earnhardt; those speed demons like Willie K. Vanderbilt, Fireball Roberts, and Junior Johnson, who came along long before Daytona and NASCAR became household names. Big, brawling, colorful, and smart-every bit as exciting as the sport itself, DAYTONA does for racing what The Boys of Summer did for baseball-and will stand as a classic in its own right.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Near-Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall., Warner Books Inc, 2001, New York, New York, U.S.A.: Harper Entertainment, 2002 Near-new condition. NO remainder marks or price clippings. Tight spine, clean pages. 255 pages. NO writing, marks or tears inside book. Foreword by Richard Childress. NASCAR is fast, loud, exciting, exhilarating, and the fastest-growing sport in America. Now, a former sports reporter and the author of What Southern Women Know enters this "man's world" of blinding speed and thundering engines to offer a fascinating, funny, poignant, and remarkable look at the racers, their fans, their cars, and their lives from a woman's point of view. My Life in the Pits Ronda Rich came to Winston Cup racing as a skeptical young journalist working on a story about the sport's emerging dynasty, the Elliotts. Once there, like so many others she found it hard to leave, becoming addicted to the spellbinding thrill of high velocity and the smell of gasoline. Behind the scenes at race tracks like Talladega and Daytona, she rubbed shoulders with the colorful and unforgettable stars who drive fast for love and glory: the charismatic Richard Petty, the gifted and mercurial Tim Richmond, Bobby and Davey Allison, Alan Kulwicki, Darrell and Michael Waltrip, Richard Childress, and the Intimidator himself, Dale Earnhardt, to name but a few. What she expected was a world of big egos and macho posturing; what she discovered was a close-knit family with its roots firmly planted in America's heartland -- a devoted brotherhood united by friendship, love, loss, and triumph. In what is perhaps the most extraordinary and revealing book ever written on the subject, Rich puts us behind the steering wheels of NASCAR's fastest machines and into the hearts and minds of those who drive them. We follow her into the high-tech garages and private jets and onto the tracks where legends are born ... and sometimes destroyed in the squeal of tires and chilling shriek of twisted metal. With her we share the agony of racing wives and experience the courageous culture of the NASCAR circuit. And we share her heartbreak on that dark day in Daytona when thousands witnessed the horrific crash that cost Dale Earnhardt, the Man in Black, his life. Along with Rich's vivid and enthralling first-person accounts, My Life in the Pits contains fascinating insights on racing and life from the cream of the NASCAR crop. It is the ultimate inside look at the world of professional speed, a book no fan should be without -- an eye-opening, often hilarious, and always moving and unforgettable tribute to the people, the competition, and the unparalleled passion that makes this singular sport everything it is..
