Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
This large pictorial book offers readers an exclusive all-access pass into the day-to-day operations of NASCAR teams. The editors of NASCAR Scene, the most widely read magazine on the sport, take you through the entire process: testing the track and time trials; pit crew drills and tinkering with the engine; briefings and race strategy meetings; and all the action to the checkered flag.
Library Journal
Devoted to one entire week on the NASCAR (National Association of Stock Car Racing) circuit, this book follows not only the race action itself but also the action surrounding the race at Talledega Superspeedway on May 1, 2005. The narrative follows teams as they arrive on site, prepare and test the cars, and meet to strategize. Then it covers the grueling 500-mile race itself. More than half of the book consists of photos, and the large-format and full-color reproductions make this a volume of particular interest to racing fans. While other NASCAR photo books are available, the access given photographers of the specialty magazine NASCAR Scene by security-minded officials at the sanctioning body means that this book offers documentation unavailable elsewhere. For example, access was granted to the post-race inspection area where the winning car is scrutinized and examined to see if it meets all regulations. Until now, no reporters or photographers have been allowed there, so these are the first detailed photos of how this analysis is conducted. Interviews with top drivers round out the book and increase its appeal. Sure to be a winner with racing fans of all ages, this book is recommended for public libraries as well as those with transportation or motorsports specialties.
