Fan favorite Sharyn McCrumb teams with professional race car driver Adam Edwards for this high-speed tale of horsepower and high jinks. When hotshot stock car driver Camber Berkley crashes his ride on a winding mountain road, the wreckage interrupts the funeral of a wealthy racing fan. The folks of Judas Grove, Tennessee, give Camber a choice. He can either spend three months in the slammer, or he can train the local ministers as they prepare for a lucrative two-million-dollar race. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “Collaborating with racing expert, Adam Edwards, she composes the skilled but hapless hero, Camber Barker, a Cary Grant of speedways classic Southern humor with stock car smarts.”

    Asheville Citizen Times

  • “Along the twists and turns of the plot, the authors offer lots of fascinating details about stock car racing, making this book a perfect gift for beginning racing fans. The only thing more rare than a good novel is a good novel that can make me laugh out loud. I actually slapped my knee a few times, that’s how hilarious Faster Pastor is. Any Hollywood producer worth her stripes should immediately option this heartfelt, action-packed, goofy novel and put it on the big screen.”

    " Author annoyed me by talking down. I didn't need to be reminded every single time that one of the nine racers had previous experience. Not being a racing fan I found Racing in the Rain a much better tale with the same setting. This story was innocuous but it had no heart. "

    " Not great literature, but I do love Sharyn McCrumb! All I know about NASCAR I learned from her book St. Dale and now this one! I started reading her with the Rosewood Casket and now I read everything she writes. "

    " If you know nothing about NASCAR racing this is the book to learn the basics. Plot is amusing and inventive. Funny throughout. A really good read. "

    " A fun read, I enjoyed it very much. Can't wait for her latest to come out. "

    " This was a really great book, the only reason I didn't give it "amazing" status is because I'm just not that into NASCAR (Sorry Sharyn). "

    " Only read this because My husband were on a trip to NC with my (former ) pastor and his wife, when we spotted this on a table at a local winery. Not a great book, but I did enjoy it.... "

    " I love Sharyn McCrumb's writing, but didn't care for this story. I care nothing about racing. Some problems with copyediting during the final chapters of the book. Book didn't go into the paths I'd expected. Will pick up more of her books ... just not ones about racing. "
