Every sport has its own giants, those who dominate a team or an era, men and women who stand apart with a determined focus and skills that are a perfect blend of God-given talent and years of dedication and hard work. Basketball had Michael Jordan, and golf has Tiger Woods. Nascar is no exception. The world of stock-car racing has witnessed several standouts through the years, but perhaps none more outstanding than Cale Yarborough. Never before have race tracks been attacked with such tenacity race after race. When Cale was in the field, his hard-charging style of driving was only limited by the abilities of his car and crew. His instinctive courage allowed him to make moves on the track that sometimes seemed impossible. The saga of Cale's life, told for the first time ever in this authorized biography, reads more like a novel or a movie script. The sandy farmland in central South Carolina forms the backdrop for a tale of remarkable adventures and well-earned success nurtured by family support and community involvement. But mostly it is a story of a boy who decided early on that he wanted to become a Nascar driver of the highest caliber. In a world where heroes are getting harder and harder to find, the story of Cale's life serves as a reminder that they're still out there. There are still those whose sheer determination set examples for us to follow as we strive to reach our own dreams. Cale's path to three Nascar championships and the setting of many records that still stand more than 25 years later is a feel-good story of success made all the more poignant by the doubt and difficulties encountered along the way. Cale enables the reader to know a great man, a man still revered asperhaps the greatest stock-car driver ever.
