Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2008 December)

Gr 3–6—Simple writing (a compound sentence is a rarity), clear action photos, and colorful pages liberally sprinkled with "Track Fact!" boxes and definition bars for highlighted terms make these titles attractive. They are quick reads for young NASCAR enthusiasts and older children with reading problems. Included in each is a "Cup Career Statistics" chart, a glossary compiled of those highlighted definition bars, and directions for accessing FactHound. Falling neatly between the simpler "NASCAR Champions" series (Rosen)—think Connor Dayton's Kasey Kahne (2008)—and the more demanding "Race Car Legends" (Chelsea House), these books will pull a checkered flag from NASCAR enthusiasts who read too competently for the former and are not up to the demands of the latter.—Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY
