Heroes of Racing (Enslow)
This is a biography of Darrell Waltrip, the one-time NASCAR star turned racing commentator, with full-color photos, charts of career statistics and achievements, chapter notes, resources for further information, a glossary and an index. The book is attractively presented, with large print, full-color photos and “did you know?” boxes that will attract the reluctant reader who is interested in the subject. While the vocabulary is not necessarily easy, the layout will attract those who do not consider themselves “readers”. Kennedy, Carol
