About the Author:

As a journalist, Deann Alford has written about ordinary people taking extraordinary action for good amid death and tragedy. She travels to countries such as Pakistan, Gaza, Nigeria and Colombia—places that are far away, exotic, and potentially lethal. She has interviewed the powerful (George W. Bush) and the dispossessed (homeless churchgoers in Waco, Texas). Her beat is the world of human hurt and human hearts. But her son caught an affinity for things that go vroom, and that introduced her to NASCAR. An Internet search revealed a fascinating world that enhanced race-watching Sunday afternoons as a family. It ultimately inspired this book in which NASCAR fans, casual and devout alike, will find hope that they, too, can achieve their own dreams. She lives with her family in Austin, Texas.
