Review:

What's your greatest NASCAR memory? Bob McCullough (My Greatest Day in Baseball) posed that question to 47 drivers, owners, crew chiefs, and NASCAR officials--from Bobby Allison to Smokey Yunick--during the 1999 season. For Jeff Gordon, the answer was recent history: winning the 1999 Daytona 500 on Valentine's Day. "King" Richard Petty had to reach a bit farther back--to the 1984 win at the Firecracker 400 with then-President Reagan watching in the stands. Cale Yarborough went even further back: remembering his first career victory, the 1968 Southern 500 in Darlington--just 15 miles from where he was born and raised. No matter the vintage, the stories offer up an intimate perspective on the world's fastest-growing sport. "Awesome Bill from Dawsonville" Elliott, Dale and Ned Jarrett, Benny and Phil Parsons, Bobby and Terry Labonte, Bobby and Donny Allison--all the greats of stock-car racing are here. My Greatest Day in NASCAR is essential reading for NASCAR fans. --M. Stein
