The nuts and bolts of NASCAR in a counting book full of racecars
Counting by ones, tens, and hundreds, young NASCAR fans can practice their numbers while racing around the track at top speed. They will learn what a "front runner" is and how many crew members it takes to make car adjustments during a pit stop. But best of all, they'll chase the cars around the track. By the time young readers cross the finish line in the book, they'll feel like NASCAR winners!

Count EIGHT cylinders-starting to pump . . . Keep on digging-safely 'round the bend. Let's keep counting-now by tens! . . . FIFTY greatest drivers. Count yourself in! Count SIXTY years-since the first NASCAR win . . . Shut down your engine. The race is done. In NASCAR numbers-you're number ONE!
