About the book

In The Evolution of NASCAR®: A Historical Collection, veteran NASCAR writer Deb Williams traces the history of stock car racing s premier circuit from the early races on the beach to the dusty bowls of the Southeast to the sprawling superspeedways of today. She also reintroduces the stars through the years Red Byron, Lee and Richard Petty, David Pearson, Dale Earnhardt, Bill Elliott, Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson and many others. This detailed scrapbook contains neverbefore- published photographs, artwork and memorabilia drawn from archives. Tucked into dozens of pockets, fans will find reproductions of old race programs, historic tickets, postcards and photos. These fascinating replicas include a 1940s Bill France Sr. business card, a 1948 ad for the first NASCAR beach and road race, a 1959 program from the first Daytona 500, a 1963 newsletter, a 1974 NASCAR driver s license, a 1981 Darrell Waltrip Driver of the Year banquet menu and a 1994 Brickyard 400 press credential. No racing fan should be without this home archive of NASCAR s illustrious history.

Book signing takes place in the NASCAR Hall of Fame Gear Shop.
