“Lord, bless this child. May he learn words
of praise to You. Protect him from this environment.
Use him, Lord. Make him a traveller for You.”
Born in a tavern, John Earnhardt was delivered by a praying Adventist nurse. Growing up during the early days of NASCAR, he spent much of his childhood playing around a racetrack with a boy named Dale Earnhardt. Both boys had blue eyes and brown hair. Many people thought they were brothers. Both families were bootleggers who became racers. But how different would be their destinies.
Little Dale would become known as The Intimidator and be immortalized as a legend in NASCAR racing, savouring 76 wins in Victory Lane.
John, who used to lie on the bootleg beer in the back of his father’s truck, would take a different road to glory. Not one paved with asphalt or filled with cheering fans, but it would lead to the ultimate Victory Lane.
In this book Crystal Earnhardt exposes family secrets to share the miraculous story of how God’s redeeming love can reach deep into the grease pits of sin, proving that there is no clay too difficult for Him to mould.
