Daytona, Sebring, Mid-Ohio, Belle Isle, Watkins Glen, Lime Rock, Portland, Sonoma! Nicknamed Kentucky Lightning for his blinding speed in a race car, Lance Courage, an African American racer from the country roads of Kentucky, is labeled by racing experts as the new Willy T. Ribbs and the next Bill Lester.

After two successful years racing Formula 3000 in Europe, Lance returns to his home of Everly, Kentucky, to compete in the North American Road Racing Association’s Sports Prototype circuit, thanks to the black businessman who got him started in Formula Fords, Mr. Harry Jameson. Mr. Jameson pairs him with Amy Lyn Woods, a biracial female from the nearby town of Acorn Flats. Woods, a hard-charger in the sport of male domination, races on the Pony Car circuit. She becomes his co-driver on the Sports Prototype circuit. But they become more than just co-drivers – they become more than just friends!

Pursuing his desire and goal to race on the Formula One circuit, Lance pursues his desire, passion, and love for Amy Lyn in the high-speed, action-packed thrill of North American road racing in Kentucky Lightning: The Story of Lance Courage!
