"The writer to Hebrews tells us that life is like a race and, like the Daytona 500, it's a race of endurance as much as speed."

What started as southeastern regional entertainment has grown to become the second-most popular professional sport in America. NASCAR races are broadcast in over 150 countries to 75 million fans who purchase over $2 billion in annual licensed product sales.
In Before the Thunder Rolls, former Motor Racing Outreach chaplain Dale Beaver reaches for the hearts and souls of these fans. From his years with the Sprint Cup Series, he offers inspirational insights and anecdotes about individual racers and crew members, including Dale Jarrett, Ward Burton, Bobby Labonte, Ryan Newman, Jimmy Spencer, Bill Elliott, Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, and others. Each makes profound and often witty connections between the behind-the-scenes details of stock-car racing and the Christian life.
Before the Thunder Rolls shares with racing fans:
- An insider's look into each critical stage of the racing experience, from "It Starts in the Shop" to "Off the Truck," from "How Did We Qualify?" to "Final Inspection," finishing with "Staying on Track off the Track"
- Scripture selections related to these pivotal moments in the racing experience
- Spiritual tools for facing each day
