St. Louis' Own NASCAR Star to Tell of Life in the Fast Lane

CM_BookClub_HermanBook: Kenny Wallace to Discuss New Book at Fontbonne University Book Club

NASCAR's Kenny Wallace will discuss his new book, "Inside Herman's World: The Kenny Wallace Story," during the Fontbonne University/KMOX Book Club, from 9 - 11 a.m., Aug. 28 at Sunset Country Club in Crestwood.

According to the publisher, in a fascinating recounting of his roller coaster life and career, Wallace shares stories about a racing-obsessed youth, the pain of losing his best friend and remarkable insight from a life "well-lived." A NASCAR crew chief before he was 21 years old, a nine-time winner in the Busch Series and a go-to driver for NEXTEL Cup car owners, "Herman" provides an insider's view of great drivers such as Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Richard Petty and so many more, including brother Rusty Wallace, as well as a behind-the-scenes look in racing television. "Inside Herman's World" is the rollicking good time fans would expect, but it's also poignant and perceptive.
