Within a Hair's Breadth of Death

In this interesting article, Barney Oldfield is quoted as he reflects on his auto racing career and his prospects for the future. With candor, he flatly states that his motivation is money. On the other perhaps he is not so candid. He dismisses the appeal of cheering crowds. From what I can glean of the real Barney Oldfield, that was hugely important to him as well.
