The book did seem to have some wrong info, such as Bill Elliott winning the Daytona 500 during the Sudafed fiasco. Bobby Allison won it that year. The story was lacking in some of its statements, so that was disappointing, knowing more could have been gotten regarding Mr. Richmond's colorful life.
NASCAR is mainly a guy's pastime, so I would have expected a male narrator, but Ms Padovan's lower/tomboyish voice actually pulls off narrating this story very well. And I doubt Audible's Critics review would have said such glowing praise if they truly didn't like her narration. Looks like she actually researched some of the accents for certain well known folks because she emulated their vocal styling very well.
Overall, a very entertaining, interesting bio on the late, great Tim Richmond.

Great story but the narrator was terrible, she spoke in accents which were insultingly bad. Narrator did not take time to research the correct way to pronounce people's names or certain terms that stand out to avid fans of the sport. The story is fantastic and I wish I was old enough to have watched Tim race.

Would you try another book written by David Poole or narrated by Christine Padovan?
David Poole - Yes.
Christine Padovan - No! Definitely not! How did this person ever get hired to read this book aloud? Did nobody listen to her? "Terrible" would be a compliment. Her sentences actually do not make sense because she is pausing at the end of every line. e.g Tim Richmond led every lap of the Penzoil 500. Until his engine blew three laps from home.
Would you be willing to try another one of Christine Padovan’s performances?
Could you see Tim Richmond being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?
Yes, quite easily.
