In the history of motorsports in North America, Isaac is the enigma wrapped in a race car. He didn’t search the spotlight. The spotlight found him. He’s the cliché hard-luck story with the unfortunate ending. His amazing rise from farm boy to mill worker to racing champion is the stuff of Hollywood. Only Hollywood was never really interested. And, truth be told, neither was Isaac.
Born in 1932 (or 1934, since accounts vary) in the heart of dirt-track country in the foothills of North Carolina’s Blue Ridge mountains, Isaac was one of nine children who at age 6 had to cope with the death of his father. Tragedy struck just 10 years later when his mother died.
