Overview

The second title in the new, exciting, and completely original Sports by the NumbersTM series!

THE SPORT: The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing is the second-most popular professional sport in terms of television ratings in the United States behind the National Football League. Its international appeal is even greater, with races broadcast in more than 150 countries and an estimated fan base exceeding 75 million faithful worldwide! NASCAR has come a long way since its humble beginnings in the late 1940s, and has become an empire unto itself. The Sports by the NumbersTM team takes great pride in presenting this book as the second in the series of books dedicated to you . . . the sports fan.

THE FORMAT: The presentation created by the authors distinguishes Sports by the NumbersTM from everything else available today. NASCAR is composed of ten chapters, each offering one hundred numbered "mini-stories"-facts, anomalies, records, coincidences, and enthralling lore and trivia. Each chapter begins with a stirring introduction highlighting the many exciting stories detailed in that chapter.

INTERACTIVE: Numerical entries tagged with SBTN-All Star and SBTN-Hall of Fame logos are scattered throughout this book. These logos indicate that more information is available at our website sportsbythenumbers.com. Just click on the athletic locker in the bottom right-hand corner of the homepage and access additional reading material, audio and video clips, and more.

Sports by the NumbersTM books are not just for the die-hard sports fan, but for every fan and sports history reader who loves sports and wants to know more about their heroes and favorite teams. They will quench any fan's thirst for entertainment and knowledge.
