He Crashed Me So I Crashed Him Back by Mark Bechtel Book Review
I wanted to pick up some NASCAR books for my pop's birthday a few years back and this book kept coming up as I researched the NASCAR books out there. He really enjoyed it and gave it to me to read. My reading schedule hasn't been great but once I got started it was a book I didn't want to put down. Mark Bechtel does a great job of describing the events of the 1979 Daytona race and how it catapulted the sport into the public's consciousness. But this book is so much more than that one day. It provides so much insight into the beginnings of NASCAR as well as the great drivers early on and through the seventies. It also details the 1979 season itself which saw a great race for the championship. Bechtel lays it all out in an easy-to-read way that provides an abundance of information with humor and insight. If you at all like NASCAR you must read this book. You won't be disappointed.
