With a slight turn of the wheel, our course can be altered forever.
“Race From the Finish” is the inspiring story of a young man chasing his dream in stock car racing. Set in the post-World War II era, the novel demonstrates the importance of personal relationships in the pursuit of life’s purpose. Through the main character, author D.T. Dignan allows readers to escape into the past while realizing that the struggles of individuals are timeless.
The novel also provides detailed information about historic stock car racing, including the early days of NASCAR, and highlights other issues of 1950s culture.
“My inspiration for the book came from a 1956 Chevy Bel Air Sport Coupe called Lil’ Darlin,” Dignan says. “As I took her to auto shows, I realized she was a trigger for memories, a holder of stories and a partner in the lives of many people who long for the simpler time she inspires.”
Dignan’s work is a character-driven story that seeks to provide encouragement and moral support for those frustrated with the direction their life is taking. Ultimately, it is a tale about challenging obstacles, second chances, pursuit of a dream and everyday adventure.
