Project Description

Fueled by Family is an in-depth look at the relationships that make motorsports mean something more than just fast cars and finish lines. From hometown dirt tracks to international super speedways, auto racing is fueled by family and the friends that become families. Through first-hand accounts and personal stories this book shows auto racing’s emotional core that puts drivers behind wheels and fans in the stands. Fueled by Family is a love story for everyone.
