As if all that has happened wasn’t enough already, Darland is also the subject of a new book written by legendary motorsports writer Bones Bourcier titled “The People’s Champ.” The book is expected to be available in July during Indiana Sprint Week.
“It’s pretty fascinating that a guy from Lincoln like me is the subject of a book,” he quipped. “It is hard to imagine. Back when I was playing basketball at Lewis Cass, I would never have thought one day someone would write a book about my life.”
The way he continues to amaze, it’s a good bet that there will be a revision in a couple of years to add to his already Hall of Fame worthy list of accomplishments.
