Abstract:

This memoir of legendary autoracing veteran Lenny Miller offers a rare and surprising inside look at the struggles and triumphs of some of the most courageous men and women in motorsports--African Americans. Whether you're a racing fan or a black history enthusiast, the author's deeply personal chronicle of his remarkable forty-year career as a manager and owner of African American teams is a testimonial to the empowered underdog in all of us. From the pits where resourcefulness defines victory or defeat, to behind the wheel with nothing but the smell of adrenaline and fear, to the plush upholstered offices of corporate sponsors where truth can be treacherous, this book is a window into the resiliency of the human spirit in the face of injustice, humiliation, and even cruelty, yet it also celebrates the hope and possibility for change.--From publisher description.
