The First Lady of Dirt - The Triumphs and Tragedy of Racing Pioneer Cheryl Glass



In The First Lady of Dirt: The Triumphs and Tragedy of Racing Pioneer Cheryl Glass, Bill Poehler recounts how race car driver Cheryl Glass rapidly became a trailblazer as one of the few Black women in the sport, including the first to win the Skagit Speedway season finale as an 18-year-old rookie. But no matter how perfect her life seemed from the outside, there was more going on under the surface. She suffered major injuries, including repeated concussions. She struggled with depression. And she had to deal with racist and sexist taunts from other drivers and fans throughout her career. 
Featuring exclusive interviews with Cheryl's mother, friends, and competitors, The First Lady of Dirt tells for the first time Cheryl's story in its entirety, from her highest highs as a racecar driver to the debilitating circumstances around her death. It's the inspiring story of a racing pioneer and a tragic tale of the pressures that are often hidden from public view until it's too late.
