Editorial Reviews

Review

The apostle Paul likens the Christian life to a race (2 Timothy 4:7). If anyone can relate to this analogy, it's Darrell Waltrip! Together with Kyle Froman and Billy Mauldin, he has crafted a message for readers that is challenging, insightful, and inspirational. 
Jim Daly, President of Focus on the Family


DW, Kyle and Billy all have deep stories that touch us in different ways. Each story shows God plan for their lives as individuals and weaves them together to make a riveting book to read. Ultimately it shows that no matter what we are going through or struggling with God has a plan and it never fails. We just need to be diligent and trust Him and obey Him at the same time. Sometimes our plans are not God's plans but when we look back on our life His plans always come through. The Race shows us His plan for our lives. 
- J.D. Gibbs, President of Joe Gibbs Racing


In The Race, my friends Kyle Froman, Billy Mauldin and Darrell Waltrip will make you uncomfortable with where you are while providing clarity about where you need to be. 
- Andy Andrews, New York Times bestselling author of How Do You Kill 11 Million People?, The Noticer & The Traveler's Gift


The walk with Christ comes alive when you see it played out in the daily events of our lives. Reading "The Race, Living Life on Track" was perfect and powerful for me because I love racing, I loved the stories that Darrell told about his career and I was inspired by the way his stories were connected by Billy and Kyle to seeing the hand of Christ guiding us throughout our lives. This book is alive with speed, hope and encouragement. 
- Rudy Kalis, Sportscaster and I Am Second Personality


In The Race, Kyle, Billy and Darrell offer practical, biblical help for the person who understands the only way to change the world is to get their life on track.
- Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel for the ACLJ, Radio Host of Jay Sekulow Live!, Guest Commentator on Fox News Channel

As I read through the book, I felt as if I was sitting on a sunny back porch, glass of sweet tea in hand, listening to the stories of these three men.

Format: Kindle Edition
The old adage never judge a book by it's cover could have been coined in regards to this book. Based on the cover alone, the average NASCAR fan might pick this book up thinking it's a biography of Darrell Waltrip. They might expect to be regaled with great behind-the-scenes tales from his years racing in NASCAR's premier racing series. They would get this in some respects but do not be fooled. The Race: Living Life On Track by Froman, Mauldin and Waltrip is NOT about Darrell Waltrip as much as it's a story of Motor Racing Outreach (MRO) who ministers and guides those in the NASCAR community. And while indeed it contains many anecdotal stories from the track it's more about how they assist those in the racing community win the race of life though faith.

The authors of The Race are three-time NASCAR Champion Darrell Waltrip, Kyle Froman (Director of Development for Motor Racing Outreach) and Billy Mauldin (the President and CEO of Motor Racing Outreach. Each chapter of the book has a theme on how this can be done and includes relative stories from the track but also relevant bible verse and personal experience from each of the three authors with the theme and it's lesson for the race of life. These stories make the book easy to relate to for race fans on an individual level while continuing to relate back to the NASCAR community as a whole. Also in each of the chapters the three authors take on the themes with personal revelations from the track and their respective lives in general. At first I thought this style produced a disjointed text but either I got use to the format or it cunningly pulls together the further you are into the book.

This book is for the Christian NASCAR fan looking for guidance on incorporating faith into many aspects of their everyday life.

My Thoughts On The Book: I think it is funny that I live in the south and am not a NASCAR fan. I have been to several NASCAR races, I live a short distance from Talladega Motor Speedway, but have never felt the draw of the crowds or the loudness of the cars. I almost did not ask to review this book because of that. I am glad I chose to go with my gut feeling and read this outstanding book. Each chapter has a theme that is NASCAR related and then Waltrip, Mauldin, and Froman share insights into their own walks. I loved all the stories they shared. My favorite chapter was called Arriving at My Destination: Where Does God Want Me to Serve? It begins with a thought from Darrell Waltrip that says "life is full of stepping stones." and asks "What is your plan?" He and Billy Mauldin share life faith stories, scripture, and their callings. I could not put the book down. If you are a NASCAR fan this is a wonderful read, but even if you are NOT a NASCAR fan this is one special book about making a difference and doing what you are called to do. I loved it!

If you believe you are called to be a minister to others, regardless of your vocation, this is a great place to start. Minimal investment of money and time (I read it in a single sitting)--HUGE payoffs in terms of what you'll learn about making an impact in whatever circumstances you may find yourself!

Just want to say that this book touches my heart in so many ways ...
"My goal is to know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship
of His sufferings, being conformed to His death" Phil. 3:10
Only due to God's grace am I able to now "slow down and signal" in life!
A Great read! Very inspirational!
