0 Reviews

In the four years since his dad's untimely death, Dale Earnhardt Jr. has only continued to live up to the legacy "The Intimidator" left behind. Keeping the diehard #3 fan up-to-date on the stellar career of one of NASCAR's current top stars, this second edition will contain all the original edition's Circle Track and Stock Car Racing magazine articles that followed Little E from Andy Hillenburg's driving school through the Busch series to Cup racing and add pieces on Earnhardt's successful 2003, 2004, and 2005 seasons.

With a career 15 wins, he has been in the thick of the championship hunt the last two seasons while only continuing to heighten his profile as a spokesman for NASCAR racing. Many of his legions of fans were also fans of his dad, but Little E has earned their respect on his own merit, and with each passing year he moves further out of his father's shadow and into his own limelight.

The book features photography from both Nigel Kinrade and the Primedia archives. A complete updated statistical chart will be included.
