Earnhardt Nation: The Full-Throttle Saga of NASCAR's First Family

by Jay Busbee


A colorful, fearless portrait of the larger-than-life first family of NASCAR, the Earnhardts, and the rise of the world’s fastest stock car racing organization.

More than sixty years ago, Ralph Earnhardt toiled in a cotton mill in his native North Carolina to support his growing family. Weekends he could be found going pedal to the metal at the dirt tracks, taking on the competition in the early days of box car racing and becoming one of the best short-track drivers in the state. His son, Dale Earnhardt Sr., would become one of the greatest drivers of all time, and his grandson Dale Jr, would become NASCAR’s most popular driver of the 2000s. From a simple backyard garage, the Earnhardts reached the highest echelons of professional stock car racing and became the stuff of myth for fans.

Earnhardt Nation is the story of this car-racing dynasty and the business that would make them rich and famous—and nearly tear them apart. Covering all the white-knuckle races, including the final lap at the Daytona 500 that claimed the life of the Intimidator, Earnhardt Nation goes deep into the fast-paced world of NASCAR, its royal family’s obsession with speed, and their struggle with celebrity.

Jay Busbee takes us deep inside the lives of these men and women who shaped NASCAR. He delves into their personal and professional lives, from failed marriages to rivalries large and small to complex and competitive father-son relationships that have reverberated through generations, and explores the legacy the Earnhardts struggle to uphold.

Hard cover, 352 pages.

In the Red

by Jade Gurss


The death of Dale Earnhardt on the final lap of the 2001 Daytona 500 is the most prominent moment in NASCAR history, but only a handful of people know what went on behind the scenes before and after that horrible crash.

In the Red
is an insider's look at the 2001 NASCAR season with his son, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Earnhardt Jr. began his second season in NASCAR's Winston Cup Series with swagger and confidence, only to see his entire life changed drastically. In the Red is the story of how Dale Jr. persevered, overcoming boundless grief to thrive on and off the track.

Written by Earnhardt Jr's publicist, Jade Gurss (who also co-authored Dale Jr's best-selling book, Driver #8), In the Red puts you inside the race car as Junior and his No. 8 Budweiser team made an emotional but triumphant return to Daytona, then scored another momentous victory in the first race after the September 11 terrorist attacks.

Off the track, follow along as Junior attends the MTV Music Video Awards, and makes memorable appearances in the pages of Rolling Stone and Playboy magazines as well as emotional interviews on the “Today Show” and many more.

Hard cover, 304 pages, no photos.
