NASCAR broadcaster Larry McReynolds will release his autobiography on May 24th via VIP Ink Publishing. NASCAR veteran Larry McReynolds will tell all in his new autobiography “The Constant Pursuit of Perfection,” due to be released May 24th. McReynlds was born in Birmingham, Alabama, and over the course of his career, has become a NASCAR broadcasting icon. His story illustrates faith and determination, as well as some of the struggles he has faced as he touches the lives of millions.
McReynolds’ NASCAR career began over 40 years ago, in 1975. He gradually worked his way up the ladder, and by 1985, he was a crew chief. His first win in this new position came in 1988 at Watkins Glen, where driver Ricky Rudd was victorious. He continued building a reputation as a winner in 1992, when he was the crew chief for Daytona 500 winner Davey Allison in the #28 car, the Robert Yates Racing Ford Thunderbird. In 1997, he joined Richard Childress Racing, and helped the legendary Dale Earnhardt win the 1998 Daytona 500.
After the 2000 season, McReynolds made a difficult decision. He left Richard Childress Racing and started a broadcasting career. He joined Mike Joy and three time Winston Cup Champion Darrell Waltrip. The three have a formed a dynamic trio since 2001 as commentators for FOX SPORTS. Currently, McReynolds is a racing analyst for FOX SPORTS and FOX SPORTS 1, and a columnist on FOXsports.com
