Young stock car fans looking to learn more about their favorite sport need look no further than NASCAR’s Greatest Drivers, a survey of the greatest drivers in racing history. Featuring in-depth bios of and stats for Glenn “Fireball” Roberts (whose nickname came from playing baseball, not racing cars), Richard Petty (“The King”), Dale Earnhardt, Sr. (“The Intimidator”), and Jeff Gordon ( the “face of today’s NASCAR”)—along with brief entries about four others. This is a leveled reader kids will race to pick up!
Angela Roberts is a middle-school librarian. This is her first book. She lives in Knoxville, Tennessee.
