Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jamie Hain
Record winning, four-time Indianapolis 500 champion A.J. Foyt has lived a fast paced life in the world of racing. A driver since the age of three when his race-car mechanic father built him a go-kart, later at five he won his first unofficial race against a veteran driver during an exhibition at the Houston Speed Bowl. Readers follow Foyt's journey through racing from his days as a precocious young driver to over one-hundred seventy major wins in a variety of racing styles and eventually to owning his own racing team—a journey filled with both personal tragedy and professional setbacks. This well-written biography captures the reader's attention on page one and does not let go until the last page. Part of the "Race Car Legends Collector's Edition" series, this book contains a glossary of sport related terms, an index of famous drivers and races, and a list of suggested further reading and online sources about Foyt and motor sports. Foyt's career statistics and racing chronology along with action photos and informational inserts give readers quick reference guides to Foyt's career and the sport of racing. This biography would be a great addition to libraries serving children interested in the field of racing. Its captivating and easy to read style make it the ideal assignment for a reluctant reader or student interested in the sport. Reviewer: Jamie Hain
