photoThe buzz around NASCAR today is more like a roar that sounds as loudly as twenty two stock cars thundering around a track. Sports journalist Jeff MacGregor spent 10 months crossing the country to follow the NASCAR circuit and has written about it in his new book "Sunday Money."

MacGregor describes the exhilaration of being around the track, as well as the culture of camping and RVs that follow the circuit from Daytona Beach and Charlotte to Las Vegas.
