I couldn't finish reading this book. It just wasn't what I was expecting. Eventhough the author spent almost an entire year following the NASCAR circuit from track to track and back again, he still just doesn't seem to "get it." He spent that year of his life doing something that the average NASCAR fan can only dream of, but he has no clue how awesome it was. This book is not for the true NASCAR fan. Then again, it's not for the non-NASCAR fan.
