Synopsis
Laura refuses to marry Terry because he’s a professional race car driver and her father, who was also a race driver, was killed 10 years before in a race. She gets a job in a department store and dates her stuffy boss Dave. However, when she sees Terry crash during a race, she realizes she loves him, not Dave. They reconcile.

Indexer Notes

The same story was used for "I Fell in Love with a Mama's Boy!" in First Love Illustrated (Harvey, 1949 series) 4 (August 1949). The main characters' names are the same: Terry Neal (as opposed to Neil), Laura Crain, Dave Burnette. The Harvey story is longer and adds a subplot about Dave's domineering mother, but the basic plot and sequence of events is the same in both.

Terry "Neil" is spelled "Niel" on page 5.
