This book is about Nascars and racecars. It is filled with facts about the cars and photographs of races and cars. It takes three and a half hours for cars to race in the Daytona 500. The cars can race up to 200 miles per hour.

I like the photographs in this book because I like to look at race cars. I especially liked the picture of the pileup between cars 1,17,and 59 at the Daytona 500. The cars got smashed and damaged. My favorite driver is Tony Stewart, so I liked the part that told about him winning the cup. The book reminds me of watching Nascar races on television with my family. We are all fans.

I recommend this book to people who like cars because it has great pictures of many different race cars. I think Nascar fans will like this book because it shows engines and many Nascar races.
