From Ontario, California, and Daytona Beach. Florida, to Bristol, Tennessee, NASCAR enthusiasts flock to race tracks every year to enjoy their favorite sport. Here's a handy, comprehensive guidebook that will make those annual race weekend outings easier to plan and manage.

'This track guide is intended to give you every piece of information you could possibly need for your next NASCAR road trip,' writes author Liz Allison. 'Each track chapter will give you ticket and track information, hotel listings, restaurant listings, shopping spots, hospitals, airports, rental car agencies, area churches, camping info, area attractions, and special events. I have also included chapters on what you need to know before you get there and how to go NASCAR racing with the kids.'

In Race Day Overview, the opening section of the book, you'll find general information on planning your trip, what happens at the track and traveling with children. The material here ranges from how to purchase tickets, select grandstand seats and seek driver autographs to how to navigate souvenir and concession stands and what to wear on race day.

Next you'll find detailed information including maps of over twenty of the NASCAR race tracks situated around the country. Besides a short history and track records, there are listings for local lodging and food plus other material a family will appreciate, like other attractions in the area.

A veteran speedway reporter and the wife of late NASCAR driver Davey Allison, the author has written five books on racing in addition to a romance series for Harlequin. Few women know their way around the track better than Liz Allison.
