About the Author

Jay Busbee is a lead writer at Yahoo Sports, where he writes for the official Yahoo Sports NASCAR Blog. He lives in Atlanta with his family.


"A complicated family. A Paul Bunyan-like legend. A nation in mourning. A sport in transition. Chronicling any one of those topics by itself would be like trying to run Talladega in a minivan. But Jay Busbee steers us through it all like an Earnhardt racing in the draft." -- Ryan McGee, ESPN.com senior writer and SportsCenter correspondent

"Jay Busbee drives us down a winding road into three generations of NASCAR's biggest and most popular stars. Once Busbee takes you lap by lap through the tragic events of February 18, 2001, you won't be able to put this book down." -- Mike Joy, leading NASCAR announcer, Fox Sports

"In capturing the Earnhardt family's legacy, Jay Busbee conveys the importance of these larger-than-life characters during a critical time for NASCAR. This book has stories I read for the first time, and each reinforced my appreciation for the role the Earnhardts have played in the sport." -- Mike Helton, president of NASCAR

"Whether you loved Dale Earnhardt Sr. like a hero or pulled against him, Earnhardt Nation is an absolute must-read! Like so many others in the sport, I have lived this book, yet it still opened my eyes and ears to stories I'd never heard before." -- Larry McReynolds. Fox NASCAR analyst and Dale Sr.'s Daytona 500-winner crew chief
