Publisher's Description

Photographer Hunter Barnes (born 1977) is one of the foremost documentary photographers working in America today. For this book, Barnes was given extraordinary access to document NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing) culture. In order to capture the true essence of NASCAR, Barnes went on the road with the Ganassi team, sleeping in the parking lot with fans for a week before the race to really get a sense of the spirit of NASCAR and how it originally started—in the South, with the moonshiners running from the cops.
Spirit of the Southern Speedways presents an exhilarating photographic essay of racing culture and gives an intimate and insider look at NASCAR, capturing some of the most recognizable figures in racing, including the “King of NASCAR” Richard Petty, the legend Junior Johnson who has won 50 races as a driver and 139 as an owner, Jack Roush, the owner of Roush Fenway Racing team and famed race car driver Dale Earnhardt, Jr. The book also reflects on the intimate relationship between the fans and the drivers.
Barnes is known for documenting American communities that have been ignored or misrepresented by the mainstream media, including the dying communities of the Old West, and inmates in the California State Prison.
