Product Details


“Miller throws the restrictor plate away for this race. He takes you to the red line.” –Bobby Gerhart, five-time winner of the ARCA Daytona 200

“You don’t have to have motor oil running through your veins to savor the rich slice of contemporary Americana that Miller and Simon serve up—an unlikely team’s journey through the grimy garages and cool corporate offices where one of the nation’s fastest-growing spectator sport actually gets played. And if you are a racing freak, this is a book that tells secrets, names names and exposes the divisions that still constrict the sport.” –Amy Argetsinger, The Washington Post

“As a racing team executive, co-author Leonard T. Miller brings an insider’s knowledge to the story. This book will help readers understand why NASCAR, unlike other major sports, remains all-white at its top level. Racing While Black is an illuminating, action-packed journey through a little-known chapter in our country’s racial history.” –Brian Donovan, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of Hard Driving: The American Odyssey of NASCAR’s First Black Driver

“Making it to the big leagues of American motorsports is a nearly impossible climb. As we learn from Mr. Miller, when you’re an African-American, that climb becomes Mt. Everest. That’s what makes this account so important.” –Ryan McGee, ESPN The Magazine
