SUMMARY

NASCAR is fast, loud, exciting, exhilarating, and the fastest-growing sport in America. Now, a former sports reporter and the author of "What Southern Women Know" enters this "man's world" of blinding speed and thundering engines to offer a fascinating, funny, poignant, and remarkable look at the racers, their fans, their cars, and their lives from a woman's point of view.My Life in the PitsRonda Rich came to Winston Cup racing as a skeptical young journalist working on a story about the sport's emerging dynasty, the Elliotts. Once there, like so many others she found it hard to leave, becoming addicted to the spellbinding thrill of high velocity and the smell of gasoline. Behind the scenes at race tracks like Talladega and Daytona, she rubbed shoulders with the colorful and unforgettable stars who drive fast for love and glory: the charismatic Richard Petty, the gifted and mercurial Tim Richmond, Bobby and Davey Allison, Alan Kulwicki, Darrell and Michael Waltrip, Richard Childress, and the Intimidator himself, Dale Earnhardt, to name but a few. What she expected was a world of big egos and macho posturing; what she discovered was a close-knit family with its roots firmly planted in America's heartland -- a devoted brotherhood united by friendship, love, loss, and triumph.In what is perhaps the most extraordinary and revealing book ever written on the subject, Rich puts us behind the steering wheels of NASCAR's fastest machines and into the hearts and minds oRich, Ronda is the author of 'My Life in the Pits Living and Learning on the Nascar Winston Cup Circuit', published 2002 under ISBN 9780060005894 and ISBN 0060005890.
