The Daytona 500: The Thrill and Thunder of the Great American Race by Nancy Roe Pimm
The Daytona 500 gives readers a history of the Daytona race and how it developed into one of NASCAR's premier races. It also highlights major drivers and notable events. I like how the information is basic enough for those that don't know much about NASCAR, but also provides some information on the changes in design, engines, etc. over the years that will also appeal to fans of the sport. Great use of colorful photographs and includes a glossary of NASCAR terms. B rating.
