Take inspiration from these speed-loving men who believe that God always puts them on the right track.

NASCAR racing continues to grow in popularity in the United States, with sportsmen taking to the track and embarking on races of up to 200-600 miles long. You might wonder what possesses these dedicated individuals to willingly put their lives at risk as they get behind the wheel and reach dizzying speeds of 200 mph and above. But for these 9 champions, their passion for racing is matched with their faith in God, who accompanies them on and off the track, and who’s the real driving force in their lives.

We’ve selected some of the best quotes about faith from NASCAR’s biggest champions, and what they all have in common is that they don’t look to God to get them over the finishing line, but to guide them on their way.
