If you are just being introduced into the nascar world this is a great read, but for a seasoned nascar fan this book at times can become boring. Overall this is a good begginer guide. Also, i found a couple small mistakes in the story and the book needsto be updated because of some rule changes that have.been implicated since 2008.
