Trading paint: Dale Earnhardt vs. Jeff Gordon : classic photos from a classic rivalry
As Dale Earnhardt was winning NASCAR championships in the early '90s, a young driver named Jeff Gordon was rising in the ranks. Assisted by crew chief Ray Evernham, Gordon became Earnhardt's chief rival and a dominant force in this increasingly popular sport.
In Trading Paint, sports photographer George Tiedemann brings their rivalry to life in hundreds of "you-are-there" images shot on the track and in quieter moments of reflection. The respect these two champions have for each other shines through these images, many of them previously unpublished. Accompanying the photographs, their biographies tell an unforgettable story. The book takes the reader from the intensity in Earnhardt's eyes after winning his seventh championship, to his bumping of Gordon at Pocono in an attempt to pass him, to Gordon's unprecedented three championships ('95, '97, '98) in four years.
