A disaster claims the life of popular and gregarious NHRA Top Fuel racer, Darrell Russell, when his dragster swerves and cracks the wall in 2004. What initially appeared to be a bad, but survivable, crash set off a period of shock and mourning in the sport. The turnout for Russell's funeral would fill a Who's Who of drag racing. The story develops as his close friend, Rob Geiger, a media expert and writer for this high octane world, pours out his heart and capabilities in writing this deeply moving tribute "to the best friend I ever had." Both living in Houston, travel became an excursion to partner up, share rooms, meals and stories along with their family's lives. Noted auto racing author, Erik Arneson, writes in the book, "Rob Geiger does something special with his biography of the late Darrell Russell--he makes you feel as though you lost a friend . . . a special read with great touches, including the collection of memories (and photographs).
