FULL THROTTLE The Life and Times of NASCAR Legend Curtis Turner

by | Read by Rex Linn

Biography & Memoir • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

It’s the classic story. Live fast, die young. Along the way, win. NASCAR's beginnings took shape on backwoods tracks, where men like Curtis Turner bumped and skidded their way to victory. Turner and fellow pioneers paved those early dirt tracks with blood and sweat. Turner lived jumping from car to car and by flying his private plane to sniff out business deals—some good, some faltering. Rex Linn's Southern drawl steers Turner's story, which is wonderfully told in the present tense but marred by sloppy production. Non-NASCAR fans will love this as much as those who appreciate the sport's genesis. From whiskey to women, Turner never stopped running, never stopped racing, and never failed to entertain.
