Overview

High school student Shawn Riggs wants just two things in life—to be part of the popular crowd in high school and to become the next snocross national champion racer with his snowmobile. When he heads off to the season opener in Duluth, he finds himself stuck in a situation that could wipe the chances for both right off the map.

First, the local football jock, Cole Ackerman, gets himself and his dad invited along. Then, they stop in Winnipeg to pick up Jacqui Deville, the girl who beat Shawn out of last year's season high point awards. It's Shawn's first national event, and he's nervous enough to consider the options Cole recommends to get relaxed, even if they're illegal—especially when his sled needs to have its whole set-up changed for the artificial snow. Jacqui's snowmobile is fast and handling like a dream over the moguls. Shawn knows he needs to take every advantage he can to hope for a win.

This fast-paced novel takes readers behind the scenes at a WPSA snocross race, including photos from the actual Duluth season opener for the 2005-2006 season.
