This a book about a racecar driver's comeback from a near fatal accident. From the cover...In 1994, Ernie Irvan had it all. A shining star in the highly competitive world of NASCAR racing, the 35 year old driver was enjoying his best year in competition, the adulation of fans, and love of his wife and young child. But in one screeching second, the winner of 15 Winston Cup races felt his life shatter around him like the car he was driving. Hurtled into a concrete wall at speeds approaching 200 mph, Ernie Irvan was never expected to walk again, let alone sit behind the wheels of the world's most powerful automobiles. After a painful, violent recovery, Ernie continued a long tradition of disproving doubters. No Fear is both the story of his fortitude and an insider's look at the ins and outs of professional racing. From his days as a rookie through his friendships-and feuds-with track luminaries like Mark Martin, Rusty Wallace, Ken Schrader, Jeff Gordon, and Dale Earnhardt, Ernie Irvan has a remarkable story and unparalleled insight into the exciting world of auto racing. His story is an inspiration to anyone who roots for the rough-and-tumble underdog and to any NASCAR fan.
