It takes brains, character and extreme courage to succeed at the pinnacle of auto racing. Don Miller has all these attributes in spades. Roger Penske entrusted him with starting two NASCAR teams, developing their talent, getting the sponsorship and turning their drivers into megastars. Everybody knows who Rusty Wallace and Ryan Newman are. That's Miller's doing. He plucked them both from obscurity and coached them to fame. This book tells how Miller developed innovations in racing tires, driver protection, aerodynamics and even the modern souvenir trailer. It describes the combination of honesty and competitiveness needed for anyone to succeed in the sport, and even to recover from horrific injury. It's a tale of manhood, character and humanitarianism at the very highest level.
