RACE TO WIN
The 7 Essential Skills of the Complete Champion


By Derek Daly

This new edition of Race to Win offers fresh insight on why some racing teams and drivers succeed so brilliantly while others, even those who seem packed with potential, fail. Updated with information and analysis of today's fastest drivers by Derek Daly.

After a remarkable racing career that spanned nearly two decades, Daly turned his attention to the mechanics of success. He has parlayed his experience and hard-won understanding into a phenomenal second career teaching the principles of high performance to audiences throughout the auto racing and business worlds. This book offers readers the benefit of Daly's insight–and a rare inside look at world-class auto racing.

Drawing on his original research and firsthand experience with some of the legends of professional auto racing–including Rusty Wallace, Roger Penske, Mario Andretti, and A. J. Foyt–Daly discusses why some individuals and teams fail to reach their potential while others become successful and famous.

A complete course in winning, the book outlines the six key aspects of becoming a successful race car driver. Daly points out the different strengths and weaknesses among different drivers; and accordingly, he emphasizes the importance of creating an environment that takes advantage of these differences. As entertaining as it is instructive, his book will open a world of possibilities to race drivers, motorsports fans, and anyone who wants to know what it takes to win.

How to Become a Winning Crew Chief

by Larry McReynolds


In the pressure-cooker environment of NASCAR Nextel Cup racing, knowledge and experience are held tightly and rarely revealed. Until now.

For the first time, one of NASCAR’s most successful, best-known crew chiefs shares his secrets for running a successful, winning team. Larry holds nothing back—it’s all here, including organization, car preparation, race-day strategies, and even Larry’s own setup checklists, right out of his notebooks.

These elements include: Setting up a shop and establishing a crew; safety systems; stringing your race car; understanding camber, caster, and kingpin angle; tuning with springs, shocks, and sway bars; understanding wheelbase, track, toe, and ackerman; understanding ride height, weight, and cross weight; chassis geometry; finding the right setup and preparing your car for the track; brakes; aerodynamics; gears and gear selection; and testing. Then Larry takes you to the next level in finely tuned chapters that concentrate on racecraft with tips for qualifying, developing race strategies, and diagnosing and solving a myriad of problems during a race, particularly those with handling. Larry even provides recommendations for post-race checks and efficient weekly maintenance.

Soft cover, 176 pages, 9” x 11”, color photographs throughout.
