He thought that he would never make it because his parents didn’t have enough money to support his racing career and, no companies wanted to support him. This was the best biography I’ve ever read but probably the best book I’ve ever read. It teaches you how to handle the money, whether it be the very little income of a privateer or the millions of a signed professional. In the beginning of the book it talks Jeremy McGrath when he was a little kid.

It really talks about his entire carrer and all of the hard times he and his jerwmy went through to get him to the level of racing he was competed ipen. For people like me, this book is very appealing because of the way that it was written.
