In The Evolution of NASCARÂ®: 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.
