For NASCAR fans, this book is unlike any other. Partly historical and partly inspirational, this volume will fuel your enthusiasm for the sport and your faith.
Taking you on a journey from motor racing's roots in the days of Prohibition and moonshine through NASCAR culture today, author and sports journalist Chad Bonham offers candid stories about how the faith movement has been active in the sport, then and now.

• Justin Allgaier• Mark Martin• Bobby Allison• Andy Petree• Trevor Bayne• Richard Petty• Brad Daugherty• Dr. Jerry Punch• Ned Jarrett• Ricky Stenhouse Jr• Matt Kenseth• Darrell Waltrip
Ultimately, Faith in the Fast Lane: How NASCAR Found Jesus hopes to reveal to fans a little about themselves through the lens of the celebrated yet essentially human world of stock car racing. Just as members of the NASCAR family have discovered ways to blend spirituality with irreverence, the sacred with the secular, the miraculous with the mundane, readers may be encouraged to do the same.
• Two-part format provides a historical and contemporary view of the sport interwoven with rich accounts of faith in action• Contains an up-close and personal look into the NASCAR "family" and reveals many stories of faith and spirituality amid the speed and competition• Excellent as a gift for a NASCAR fan or for sport history buff
"I believe NASCAR fans will enjoy reading Faith in the Fast Lane. The stories about how the faith movement was birthed and how it grew over the decades are both inspiring and intriguing. Many of these stories have never been told before and highlight visionaries of the faith -- people who worked diligently to impact the NASCAR community with a message of hope, peace, and love. Let the stories within this book inspire you to go out into your world and become a difference maker"Michael McDowell, NASCAR Sprint Cup driver
"It's one of the best books I've read in a while. I couldn't put it down! Until now I knew very little about NASCAR, but now I have a great appreciation for the organization and for its members' strong foundation in Jesus. Thank you for the opportunity and the blessing to work on it for you."V. McGoey, Pittsburgh, PA
