Book Signing for Story of NASCAR Great Larry Phillips January 27 at Library Center and Library Station

January 20, 2011 — Authors Kendall Bell and David Zeszutek will sell and sign copies of their new book “Larry Phillips: NASCAR’s Only Five-Time Winston Racing Series Champion; Master of the Short Track” on Thursday, January 27, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Library Center and from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Library Station.

In NASCAR’s Winston Racing Series, one man stood head and shoulders above the rest. Larry Phillips won an unprecedented five Winston Racing Series championships.

Phillips was not only a driver, but he also built race cars. Many of today’s drivers learned to love racing by spending time in Phillips’ shop. Mark Martin, Rusty Wallace, Kenny Wallace and Ken Schrader are only a few of the drivers who went on to successful racing careers after learning from Phillips.
