The NASCAR drivers featured in these pages are the drivers who make stock car racing one of the fastest, and fastest-growing, sports around. They come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences, from all corners of the country.  Some of NASCAR’s top racers bear an impressive racing pedigree, with names like Earnhardt, Gordon and Andretti, names that have been part of stock car racing history for decades. Others have worked their way through anonymity to reach the top, possibly to begin a new line of racing greatness. NASCAR Racers profiles former champions and up-and-coming stars alike. An array of colorful photographs accompany the personal and professional stories behind the leading racers on the circuit today, as well as a couple of veritable legends from recent years. Statistical tables allow you to compare the on-track successes of the different racers over the years. In words, images, and numbers, this book puts all you need to know about your favorite drivers at your fingertips.
