Hard Driving: the Wendell Scott Story


Wendell Scott was the first African-American NASCAR driver. He went to hell and back again to be able to drive against the top drivers of the day, with whom he not only held his own, but often excelled against, despite horrific odds.
He did not get sponsors. He sometimes would win a race only to be denied the trophy or money. He was treated to threats, racist slurs and even attacks on his life, but he had a jones, and a talent, for fast driving that he could not deny.
I have been reading this book through a haze of tears.
