Grade 4-7-- In a straightforward first-person narrative, one of the fastest rising stars of automobile racing relates his experience as a competitor in the 1991 Indianapolis 500. Uninterrupted by chapter divisions or section titles, the story begins with Andretti's childhood as the son of famous champion driver, Mario. Black-and-white photographs accompany this section while dramatic full-color selections depict scenes, activities, and personal details revealed in the bulk of the text. Most of the pictures are uncaptioned, but relate to the text and lend an aura of immediacy. As the race itself unfolds, descriptions of strategy plus the use of specific driver and crew equipment become clear. Andretti gives a more personal viewpoint than is provided by any other work on this subject at this level. His pride in his skill, the camaraderie he feels with his family and competitors, and the deep disappointment he experiences when his best efforts fail are stated simply and effectively. The scope is similar to that of Sullivan's Racing Indy Cars (Cobblehill, 1992), which describes Arie Luyendyk's 1990 winning run, and which supplies roughly the same facts but with less emotion. --Ann G.
