About the Author:

Tony Stewart divides his time between Lake Norman, North Carolina, and his boyhood home in Columbus, Indiana.



Bones Bourcier has covered American auto racing since 1976. He contributes to numerous publications including Speedway Illustrated magazine, where he serves as editor-at-large. Bourcier has twice won the Miller Racing Award of Excellence in Honor of Russ Catlin, one of motorsports journalism’s most coveted annual prizes, in addition to other awards from the Eastern Motorsports Press Association. He is the coauthor of Racing Safely, Living Dangerously with Bill Simpson. Bourcier lives in Indianapolis.

From Booklist:

Stewart, only 30 years old, inhabits the upper echelon of the car-racing world, but his ascent to the top has hardly been meteoric. He began racing go-karts as a child and won his first national race at 12, eventually moving on to USAC sprint races and finally to the NASCAR Winston Cup circuit, where he was the 1999 Rookie of the Year. His as-told-to autobiography fits comfortably into the genre, combining an overview of his career with comments from family, peers, and media sprinkled throughout. The controversy that has followed Stewart, thanks to his sometimes outspoken interviews, is partially evident here, as he tackles some of racing's more vexing issues and emerges as a refreshingly candid alternative to the surprisingly bland, politically correct world of contemporary big-time auto racing. Dozens of black-and-white photos, many from Stewart's adolescent racing days, complement the text. Expect considerable demand. Stewart is a major star in a very popular sport. Wes Lukowsky
