Publisher's Summary

The story of NASCAR's legendary racer - newly revised! Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s name virtually assured that his life would not be ordinary. Over the past decade, he has fulfilled that destiny. His father, one of the most successful drivers in the history of international motorsports, gave his son more than his name. Dale Earnhardt Sr. placed Dale Jr. in position to follow the footsteps and tire tracks he had left from Darlington to Daytona, from coast to coast, from one championship to the next. Entering 2001, Junior was set to turn the sport on its ear. Instead, his world was rocked in the first race of the season when Dale Sr., racing behind him in a wild finish to the Daytona 500, crashed into the outside wall and was killed. The racing world mourned, and Junior’s life changed in many ways.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.: Out of the Shadow of Greatness tells the story of this remarkable young man’s journey from teenage dreamer to Winston Cup winner, from Street Stock racer to 200 mph superstar, from son of the greatest to a champion in his own right. Against the backdrop of one of sport’s biggest tragedies, he continues to carry the Earnhardt name to new heights. This newly revised edition is a must for any NASCAR fan.

do better research

The narrator said he won at Daytona in 2001 but called it the Coke Zero 400. It was the Pepsi 400. Also said Tony Stewart drove a Chevy in 2002 but it was still Pontiac

Nice, short, though a bit dated

If you like NASCAR, or just Dale Jr, you’ll probably like this. The narrator did fine, though it would have been more immersive if someone that sounded more southern would have done it.
