New Book Chronicles History of NASCAR’s Weekly Racing Program

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The 25-year history of NASCAR’s weekly short track racing program is featured in a new book out this month, from the NASCAR Library Collection and Coastal 181 Publishing.

Where Stars Are Born, written by NASCAR Senior Editor Paul Schaefer, chronicles the complete history of NASCAR’s weekly racing program, which was founded in 1982.

"This is a great read for folks who are interested in NASCAR's history and grassroots heritage," said Jim Hunter, NASCAR's Vice President of Corporate Communications. "It's about some of the people and tracks who have made NASCAR what it is today."

A signature trait of the series has been the crowning of a single national champion and the 170-page book dedicates a chapter to each one of these short track stars.

The late Larry Phillips, who won five national championships in 1989, ’91, ’92, ’95 and ’96, is prominently covered along with the champions and notable drivers from the past 25 years. Dozens of historical photos highlight each chapter and recall many memorable moments.

Along with Phillips, former champions Tom Hearst (1982), Mike Alexander (1983), David Into (1984), Doug McCoun (1985), Joe Kosiski (1986), Roger Dolan (1987), Robert Powell (1988), Max Prestwood (1990), Barry Beggarly (1993), David Rogers (1994), Dexter Canipe (1997), Ed Kosiski (1998), Jeff Leka (1999), Gary Webb (2000), Ted Christopher (2001), Peter Daniels (2002), Mark McFarland (2003), Greg Pursley (2004) and Peyton Sellers (2005) are profiled.

Massachusetts-based Coastal 181 is well-known for its racing books, videos and memorabilia items. Other titles available from Coastal 181 include Gotta Race, by Ken Schrader; Richie! The Life and Times of NASCAR’s Greatest Modified Driver, by Bones Bourcier; and Life Wide Open: Dave Dion No Holds Barred, by Dave Dion with Dave Moody.

Where Stars Are Born can be purchased from Coastal 181 at www.coastal181.com or by calling (877) 907-8181.
