Dirt Tracks to Glory The Early Days of Stock Car Racing As Told by the Participants


Sylvia Wilkinson


In this all-new edition of Dirt Tracks to Glory we return to the very personal and often hilarious inside stories of sharp-witted people who became legends in the early days of NASCAR. Bill France Sr, Humpy Wheeler, Curtis Turner, “Little Joe” Weatherly, Glenn “Fireball” Roberts, the Flock Brothers, Banjo Matthews, Smokey Yunick and a host of others emerge from these pages with their personal reflections and wry commentary on the way it was in the days of “haulin shine”, bangin’ fenders and out-smartin’ the other hot-shoes on Saturday nights.
