Sportswriter Dean Hensley covered all the races at the late Asheville Motor Speedway during its last three years of existence (1997-1999). But more than that, he grew up at the track-where his father was a regular in the 1970s, participating in the Poor Man's races, where roaring junk held together by little more than bailing wire, duct tape, and dreams thundered for glory around the small oval of asphalt. "All of us who were fans of the storied track and its long list of drivers," Dean continues, "have an even longer list of memories about AMS and even other tracks that have been laid to rest in Western North Carolina. I hope reading this book will maybe bring those memories and the tracks back to life." Dean's book gives you the many human stories behind racing and the speedway itself. He lets us live again those nostalgic warm Friday evenings when the thunder always turned left.
