Description

In The Weekend Starts on Wednesday, NASCAR insider Andrew Giangola scoured the circuit and slept in school buses to find remarkable fans and tell their hilarious, heart-warming stories. With a keen eye for detail and uncommon humor, Giangola probes the open hearts and colorful experiences of the sport s most fervent fans. There s a male nurse who braves death to bring the NASCAR flag to the top of Mt. Everest, and a woman who dons a nurse s outfit when her hero Dale Earnhardt Jr. wrecks; we meet a fellow who goes naked at the track save a Goodyear tire, and a lifelong fan who s been to all 51 Daytona 500 races. Celebrities are not immune from the lure of NASCAR racing either, and the stories of celebrities such as Kevin Costner, Tom Cruise, Brian Williams and Mario Batali are also told as well. This collection of amazing stories opens a new chapter on the extraordinary appeal of NASCAR, and shows why so many are so crazy about this great American sport.The Weekend Starts on Wednesday is a light-hearted, heart-warming, insider s tour of the racetracks and infields of the Deep South, through the heartland and on to Southern California. It s a guided expedition to the soul that truly makes NASCAR the nation s #1 spectator sport: its fans!See Author Andrew Giangola interviewed on FOX Television here: http: //video.foxnews.com/v/4313955/nascar-and-its-fans/?playlist_id=87484 "
