Postcards From Pit Road is a revealing and lively account of the 2002 NASCAR season. Noted motor sports journalist Monte Dutton covers everything at each stop on the 2002 Winston Cup tour, from the qualifying laps to the checkered flag. Written trackside at speedways around the country, Postcards From Pit Road provides readers with the compelling inside story of the wealthy car owners who pay the bills, the daring drivers who risk life and limb each week, and the harried crewmen who build and service the incredible racing machines with breathtaking efficiency. It's a diary that lends insight into the rich personalities of racing and examines the toll that the long NASCAR season and its accompanying fast-paced lifestyle takes on the lives of drivers, crews, and their families. Dutton goes far beyond the typical facts and figures of each race, instead weaving an insightful account of the daily lives of these modern-day gladiators.
