Product Description

From Amazon

The National Association of Stock Car Auto Racing has driven a long, hard-banked road since its dirt-track days in Dixie. From small-town beginnings to international, mass-market success, NASCAR has put the pedal to the metal in pursuit of the winner's circle. The Thunder of America, the official 50th anniversary celebration of NASCAR, is an appropriate mile marker in this uniquely American story. Just open it up and feel the heat of the track and hear the growl of 700-horsepower engines. The photography is first-rate, and the many quotes sprinkled throughout are well chosen and memorable. Here's a fan, Eddie Atkins of Atlanta, Georgia, speaking about his New Religion: "We're NASCAR people. We raise kids and work hard all week for a nice home. Saturdays are for chores and kids' soccer and baseball. Sundays are for racing." Or driving legend Dale Earnhardt on his special brand of domesticity: "I feel totally relaxed in the race car. I can tune everything else out. In a way, it's my retreat. It's probably the place where I'm most at home." If you count yourself among NASCAR's ever growing legion of fans, it's not a question of whether you'll add this big, brawling tribute to your racing library, just when.

Even if your coffee table doesn't have a used Goodyear racing tire as its base, you'll enjoy having a copy of NASCAR: Thunder of America out on display, opened to any page. -- Autoweek Magazine
