(Green Bay author’s third book “Life In The Past Lane – The Next Generation” launches Dec. 2 – 12 dates on tap)


(Green Bay, WI) – Wisconsin race fans will have ample opportunities to pick up motorsports author Joe Verdegan’s third book “Life In The Past Lane – The Next Generation” during his 12 date book tour across northeast Wisconsin scheduled for December, 2017.


Verdegan will make 12 stops in 10 different cities to promote the book – which covers history at the area race tracks from 1980 to the modern day. “We interviewed well over 200 people for this third book which is almost double the amount for the first two books I penned combined,” Verdegan said. “I enjoy doing the book signings and talking with the fans as much as I do putting the actual book together. We’ll make one dozen stops in an 18 day span. It’ll be busy but I enjoy every minute of it.”


The Holiday book tour kicks off at M & B Global Solutions Holiday book signing Saturday December 2 at Titletown Brewery’s Tap Room in Green Bay.
