  • A good friend is a real NASCAR fan and said I'd really enjoy this book. I learned a little about the various NASCAR tracks and some of the legends of racing but found "DW" way too egocentric for my tastes.


  • By the time I started watching NASCAR, Darrell Waltrip was the veteran using the Champion's provisional to get the last spot on the starting grid most weeks who then retired from racing and became the best race announcer on TV today. Therefore, this book was an excellent look at a driver whose career should not be remembered by those last couple years of not being competitive. The book ends when he retires, with a brief mention of his first race as a broadcaster being the day he finally saw his [...]


  • First off, I am not a NASCAR fan. Or should I sayI don't really follow the sport. But when someone recommends the book, I'll give it a shot. I'm glad I did.DW: A Lifetime Going Around In Circles really works for me in the sense that I can "hear" Darrell in the pages. His voice is in those words, and that's what makes a lot of this book work for me. His tone, attitude and overall demeanor really shine through and he touches on the subjects that I hoped he would when learning about an icon in his [...]


  • Outrageous, rude, brilliant PR, worked it. Wanted to make a good impression on new team, didnt want to appear just a driver and get all the glory. So, he showed up and asked what he could do to help out. The owner of the team said "Bounce Tars". There were older tires that racers had to bounce to seal them. However, this owner meant Balance tires. But because of the accent, DW could not understand and bounced the tires and they rolled all over the place and down a hill.


  • I'm a huge Nascar fan so this was a fun book for me to read. Darrell Waltrip now calls the races for Fox and it was great to be able to learn all about his racing career and how he got to where he is today. He's a great storyteller.


  • This book is full of so many great stories about an amazing racer and a wonderful human being. This is a race fans must!


  • I really liked his biography. He was Owensboro, KY ties. And, I really like his commentary on the NASCAR races. It has some really funny stories in it.
