From 1959 through 1963 Rex White won more races than any other driver, and he competed among the best--Lee and Richard Petty, Ned Jarrett, Fireball Roberts, Junior Johnson, Joe Weatherly, Curtis Turner and Buck Baker. He was Chevrolet s best driver in the early sixties and one of the most consistent drivers ever. If Richard Petty is the Babe Ruth of stock car racing, then Rex White is Joe DiMaggio.--Doug Allan, Motorsport America In the 1950s Chevrolet fans prayed for a savior, and Rex White answered. He took on big muscle cars, eventually winning both the 1960 Winston Cup Championship and the Driver of the Year title, and would later be named by NASCAR as one of their 50 all-time greatest drivers. This memoir tells the story of Rex White s struggle to become a champion despite a poverty-ridden childhood and a devastating physical disability. A firsthand account of the early days of NASCAR and southern stock car racing, the text is based on extensive research and hundreds of hours of interviews with Rex White by writer Anne B. Jones. It includes tales by participants and fans and is peppered with anecdotes of a virtual who s who of NASCAR drivers, including Junior Johnson, Ned Jarrett, and a host of other drivers. The book is well illustrated, largely with photographs from Rex White s private collection. Seller Inventory # AAN9780786471751
