Press Releases

NASCAR fans rarely agree on anything. They argue over the best car, best team, best driver, best track and best era.

But there is one thing that no NASCAR fan can argue - when it comes the biggest names in the sport in the past few years there are four names at the top of the list.

Drivers Series: Dale Earnhardt, Dale Earnhardt Jr, Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart offers four separate biographies of the most famous drivers of this, the most popular era in closed-wheel racing. This four-book series written by the reporters at the Charlotte Observer allows fans to get the closest glimpse possible into the lives of their favorite drivers:


DALE EARNHARDT: \'The Intimidator\' won seven NASCAR Winston Cup championships, recorded 76 major victories and captured the checked flag at nearly every major event available to NASCAR drivers; though he died on the last lap of the Daytona 500 in 2001, he is still one of the most revered icons in driving history


DALE EARNHARDT JR.: since joining the NASCAR circuit as a rookie in 2000, he has captured the hearts of fans by consistently challenging the field for the checkered flag; he recorded two victories in 2002 and three in 2001 and many experts expect great things from him in 2003


JEFF GORDON: though just 31, \'The Kid\' has established himself in the upper echelon of drivers by going head-to-head with Dale Earnhardt when he first entered the NASCAR scene; he became the youngest driver to ever win four Winston Cup titles, doing so by the age of 30


TONY STEWART: in just his third season on the NASCAR circuit he captured his first Winston Cup title; in his rookie year he posted six victories and followed that remarkable season by coming in second in the points race in his sophomore campaign

Written by one of the leading authorities on the NASCAR scene, the award-winning sports staff of the Charlotte Observer, the Drivers Series books are essential reading not only for the fan in the grandstands, but for any serious student of the sport.
