The stage was set for the tense, dramatic type of race that NASCAR fans talk about for years. But high expectations turned into terrible tragedy when in the final lap the three racers struggled for the lead, resulting in a crash that took the life of the legendary Dale Earnhardt, Sr. and swept Michael to a bittersweet victory.
In Sundays Will Never Be the Same, Waltrip provides a minute-by-minute account of the event from the perspective of sports fan, announcer, and anxious brother of one of the race's participants. He also shares personal stories and reminiscences about Earnhardt, Sr.—along with great photos—covering their shared history on the track and their friendship off of it.
Waltrip also takes us back in time and describes the formative years of motor racing, recounting hair-raising stories about dangerously constructed homemade vehicles and the daredevils who drove them.
Sundays Will Never Be the Same is the kind of book NASCAR fans hunger for, with thrills, insider stories, and a touching tribute to one of motor racing's biggest heroes. Waltrip honors both a sport that has quickly become an American tradition, as well as the memory of a legend and the ways he singlehandedly changed racing forever.
