Book Review-Sunday Money-Two and a half quacks

I finally finished reading Sunday Money today and overall the book did what it was supposed to do, by totally imersing you into the weekend spectacle that is Nascar. Though, it may not be the best description of a book when you say finally.

Mr. McGregor's writing style was a bit too descriptive or flowery for me at points. I guess it might be difficult to find ways to describe burning rubber, weekend drunkeness and middle aged women that troll the infields of Nascar races over time. I also must admit I totally skipped half a chapter devoted to Jeff Gordon, because no great words will ever make me a fan of his.

But, there were also many points where I laughed out loud at some of his comments and descriptions. Certain pages did make me feel like I was in that infield, or trying to park the giant camper with McGregor and his wife and that is what a good book is supposed to do.

So, if you are a Nascar devotee, you will enjoy this book. If you watch just the big races, like the ones at Daytona, Charlotte, California, or when the traveling circus comes into your neck of the woods, you may enjoy the history and find yourself more attracted to the sport of auto racing. If you sit down on a Sunday, flipping channels and say, "ugh Car Racing" then stay away!

I guess the joke is supposed to be, "I didn't know NASCAR fans could read", but that isn't true, since I'm a fan, too.
Actually, I'm a lot tired of the characterization of NASCAR fans as hicks, by the "ugh, Car Racing" crowd.
Throughout its history, stock car drivers have been among the more interesting characters in sport, and it hasn't changed much since then to now.
Guys like Gordon are love 'em or hate 'em types. I'm not a big fan, but he is good.
