Godwin Kelly's biography of legendary racer Glenn "Fireball" Roberts This is not a racing book. This is the story of an complex and amazing individual who happened to be one of the greatest race car drivers of his time. The glory days of racing serve as the back drop for a stormy love triangle that was the talk of the tiny resort village of Daytona Beach during the late 50s and early 60s Glenn Fireball Roberts was the first modern superstar of stock car racing. He was truly ahead of his time and already a legend in his late 20s. Unfortunately, for the woman he loved and the racing community, his time ran out far too early. Godwin Kelly became enamored with this story while working on a special feature story for the Daytona Beach News-Journals coverage of the 2004 July race. During the research, he discovered there was much more to Glenn Roberts than the Fireball persona the public saw.
