The recognized “king” of Modified racing, Evans captured nine NASCAR Modified titles in a 13-year span, including eight in a row from 1978-85. In the first year of the current NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour format in 1985, Evans won 12 races, including a sweep of all four events at Thompson, Conn.
I just finished reading the book, and have to say I was so impressed and became so emotionally involved because I lived through many of those same times. I started watching races at Fonda in 1956, and when Albany-Saratoga went to pavement, that became my home on Fridays. It was a thrill to watch some the Fonda regulars compete against the asphalt crowd of New England
Please pass along my compliments to Bones Bourcier
for writing such a fascinating biography and helping us remember the past. I couldn't put the book down with the exception of when it got to 1985. I lived through that sadness once, stopped reading, but had to finish.
Soft cover, over 350 pages.
