CLOSTER, NJ SEPTEMBER 23, 2000 . . . The important issues in his life and most of all the people he loved are all part of FULL CIRCLE: THE STORY OF DAVEY ALLISON, a 237-page book just released by Rising Star Publications, Inc. as part of their Profiles in American Stock Car Racing series. Loaded with many black and white photos and 16 pages of color photos, many never seen before, the book tells the story of Davey's auto racing career and his romance and life with his wife, Liz, and their children, Krista and Robbie. "Davey's wife Liz traces the life of Davey Allison the racer, husband, father and hero to millions from the couple's first meeting at a South Carolina dirt track in 1988 to Davey's untimely death (in a helicopter crash at Talladega Superspeedway ) five years later," wrote Bill France, Jr., NASCAR President, in a Foreward as part of this wonderful book. "It's a story of triumph, tragedy, and a tribute to a fallen hero." Many feel that Davey Allison could very well have been a NASCAR Winston Cup champion. The book, at least three years in the making, was authored by Liz Allison and noted motorsports journalists David Green and Thomas Pope. "After Davey passed away, I was overwhelmed with the amount of cards and letters that I received. The majority of people writing offered their condolences, but they also wanted to know everything about Davey. They wanted to know more about his childhood, his teen years and his personal life. They also wanted pictures to help them deal with their own grief, but also to hold on to the memory of Davey. I knew that at some point I would put together a group of people to help me tell Davey's life story," said Liz Allison. "As God would have it, Linda Albelli (president of Rising Star Publications), David Green and Thomas Pope came in to my life. The four of us finally made this come to life in FULL CIRCLE: THE DAVEY ALLISON STORY." The book, just off the presses, is available for just $24.95 plus $4.95 shipping and handling at Rising Star Publications, Inc., 353 High St. Closter, NJ 07624 or telephone 1-800-715-STAR. The book may also be ordered at sales@risingstarpub.com or visit their website at www.risingstarpub.com. The book will be available in bookstores throughout the nation in the near future. Also included in the Profiles in American Stock Car Racing series is a book on NASCAR Winston Cup racer Robert Pressley.
