In the first Chicken Soup book ever to cover auto racing, “Chicken Soup for the NASCAR Soul” is packed with great inspirational short stories of speed, courage, dedication, and overcoming adversity. Buckle up for the fastest Chicken Soup for the Soul book ever, as many of the sports’ biggest names, including Jeff Gordon and Bobby Labonte, take us inside the race car for one uplifting story after another. Other stories in this fast-moving book are written by Richard Petty, Tony Stewart, Robby Gordon, Dale Jarrett, the two indomitable Waltrip brothers, Darrell and Michael, and many more.

It also includes uplifting stories written by many NASCAR reporters, including award-winning writers such as Deb Williams, Kay Presto, and Norm Froscher. Liz Allison, Davey’s widow, tickles the reader’s funnybone with her humorous story of her embarassing moment at the racetrack, and later tugs at the reader’s heart with her inspiring story of a rainbow right after Davey’s funeral.

Even devoted NASCAR fans get into the act in this book, with hearty tales of their experiences at the tracks, telling how the NASCAR drivers have touched their lives in positive ways. This is also the first Chicken Soup book to include photos — 16 of them! — of high-speed racing action, and race drivers, in beautiful color.

This is a book for the NASCAR fan, and also for those who have never attended the sport; it has been highly endorsed by both. Whether you’re a NASCAR fan, or just like a fast ride, you’ll be inspired by the mystery and wonder of racecar driving and the colorful personalities who win our hearts on the racetrack.

A portion of the proceeds of each book goes to Kyle Petty’s Victory Junction Gang Camp, and Motor Racing Outreach.

Priced at $14.95, “Chicken Soup for the NASCAR Soul” is a bargain; and a book that you will pick up and read over and over again. No matter how many times these stories are read, they continue to inspire.
