Book Description

From the former NASCAR champion and current Fox Sports announcer, an intimate account of one of the most dramatic and tragic days in the history of NASCAR: the 2001 Daytona 500—the day that racing legend Dale Earnhardt, Sr. died.

In Sundays Will Never Be the Same, former NASCAR champion and current FOX Sports racing analyst Darrell Waltrip provides an intimate account of one of the most dramatic and tragic days in the history of NASCAR: the 2001 Daytona 500—the day that racing legend Dale Earnhardt Sr. died.

The sudden death of Earnhardt on the final lap of the 2001 Daytona 500 was a traumatic loss for the entire NASCAR family, and few were affected more deeply than Darrell Waltrip. During the course of their tumultuous thirty-year association, Dale and Darrell had been friends, then “frenemies,” and finally friends again. Darrell takes us through the fascinating history of racing in Daytona, offering glimpses of some of the sport’s most colorful characters. He recounts the highs and lows of his relationship with Earnhardt through the twin arcs of their overlapping careers, and concludes with a heart-wrenching insider account of that pivotal weekend in Daytona.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for the NASCAR fan! 13 Feb. 2012
By C. Middlekauff - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I just finished reading DW's new book on my Kindle. I loved it. As a long time NASCAR fan I could remember many of the races that he described. He takes you to the moment and explains it from a driver's point of view. He is able to relate to the long time fan and also to the newbie. I will be letting my friends know about this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Thrilling Ride with DW 23 Mar. 2012
By Whatsername - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I wanted to read this book because I'm a long-time DW fan but I didn't really expect it to be great. However, I was pleasantly surprised by a funny, entertaining, absorbing read that I had trouble putting down.

The book starts and ends on February 21, 2001, Waltrip's first day as a full-time race commentator and the day NASCAR changed forever when megastar Dale Earnhardt was killed on the last lap of the Daytona 500. In the next chapter, it's again Waltrip's first day, but this time all the way back to his debut as a driver in the big leagues at . . . Daytona. From there, he takes us on a marvelous ride thru the highlights of his illustrious career, telling each story with his trademark wit and self-deprecating humor. Along the way he also shares many details of his personal life, his spiritual journey and his loving relationship with his family. He covers the highs and lows and the in-betweens, from being the most hated driver in NASCAR right up to his induction into the Hall of Fame. Despite the fact that he is one of the most famous and most accomplished figures in racing, he never sounds boastful or proud; in fact, his humility is touching.

Finally, Waltrip again takes us back with a minute by minute account of that grim day when the sport so shockingly lost its hero, a champion larger than life. As a faithful #3 fan, I deeply felt the passing of Dale the racer, but I now have a sense of the unimaginable loss of Dale the man. Undoubtedly every race fan alive remembers how those events unfolded, but DW's sensitive retelling adds a dimension of intimacy with friends and family, those closest to the tragedy. He actually takes you into the hospital room and the finality of those last poignant moments of saying goodbye.

A must-read for DW fans and highly recommended for anyone who loves the incomparable sport of stock car racing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great way to catch up on the history of NASCAR 7 Aug. 2014
By Kayak - Published on
Great way to catch up on the history and early beginnings of NASCAR and the competitive men who started it all on Daytona Beach. This was such a great surprise for me and Darrell wrote it in an impressive way that keeps you locked in.

Dislike that the two Waltrip brother's autobiography books and titles revolve around another famous driver and his tragic death, Dale Earnhardt. Almost as if they both have to try and out do each other over who was more important to Dale. I would have titled this book completely different as it truly is Darrell's AUTObiography. ;)

If you are a NASCAR fan, you will enjoy reading this and truly helpful in understanding the inner workings of race car teams and race tracks. Opens the door completely.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Story of the Experiences of Darrell Waltrip 6 April 2014
By Jim Farley - Published on
Verified Purchase
As a NASCAR fan for over 50 years, this is a great book that chronicles the life and experiences of Darrell Waltrip as he raced his way into the Hall of Fame.

I, like so many other NASCAR fans, vividly remember the day that Dale Earnhardt lost his life on that day at the Daytona 500. With so much compassion and love, Darrell gives his account of the untimely death of The Intimadator.

This is a "must read" for all NASCAR fans!
