At the Altar of Speed takes readers behind the scenes of Earnhardt's celebrated life, tracing his rags-to-riches journey to the top of America's fastest-growing sport. Beginning with Earnhardt's early days as a child in small-town North Carolina, veteran sports writer Leigh Montville examines how a ninth grade dropout started on the dusty dirt tracks of the South, went through two marriages and a string of no-future jobs before turning twenty-five, then took about a million left turns to glory. Through the pitfalls and triumphs, Earnhardt would ultimately become a celebrated champion whose lifetime earnings would top forty-one million dollars. The son of a legendary racer. the father of a NASCAR star, he lived a total auto-racing life filled with triumph and sadness, great joy and pain. (inside blurp from book jacket)
