Press Releases

NASCAR has never previously allowed a book like this to be published. For the first time ever, NASCAR gave photographers and reporters unlimited access to the most hallowed and restricted areas not just on race day, but throughout the entire week leading up to the big race.

A Week in the Life of NASCAR: A ViewFrom Within by the editors and photographers of NASCAR Scene follows the action surrounding the May 1, 2005 , Aaron\'s 499 race at Talledega Superspeedway which Jeff Gordon won in dramatically, edging Tony Stewart and Michael Waltrip on a two-lap shootout at the finish.

In the days before and after the Aaron\'s 499 at Talledega, NASCAR Scene was given unlimited access everywhere. They followed three of the top racing teams in NASCAR: Hendrick Motorsports (drivers Jeff Gordon, Jimmy Johnson, Terry Labonte, Kyle Busch, Brian Vickers, Haas CNC Racing (Mike Bliss) and MB2/MBV Motorsports (Joe Nemechek, Scott Riggs). From private moments on team planes, to strategy sessions with crew chiefs and team members, to actual day of the race and the excitement and energy few fans see on the television screens, NASCAR Scene was there to capture it all in stunning photographs and riveting stories.

But the most exclusive aspect of NASCAR Scene\'s access was the post-race inspection pits where the winning car is examined to see if it meets regulation. No reporters or photographers have ever been allowed in the inspection pits. For the first time fans can now see what goes on behind the doors to the most secretive area in NASCAR.
