"Did you know that some drivers go over boulders instead of around them? Rock crawling vehicles have huge wheels that can grip rocks and help the cars climb steep slopes. The sport is all about precise driving. At rock crawling events, you might see cars crossing wide chasms, driving down steep slopes, and finding the best way around tough obstacles. Sometimes you'll even see cars tumble end over end down a hill!
Enter the Dirt and Destruction Sports Zone to learn about the history, strategies, competition rules, and the best drivers connected to rock crawling. You'll learn:
· When and where the first-ever rock crawling competition took place.

· What tools and strategies the drivers and spotters use to overcome obstacles.

· Why rock crawlers try to get the lowest score possible.

· How to stay safe in a vehicle perched on the edge of an enormous boulder.
Are you into sports? Then get in the zone!"

Review:

"This series explains sports that use various types of large machinery. Each book contains large, brightly colored photos or drawings on each page along with boxes that add exciting information to the text. Unfamiliar words are easily determined by looking at the pictures. These high-interest books include an interesting story about the sport, a little history of the competition, rules of the competition, the classes of machines, the dangers, and what draws spectators to the sport. Each book also has a two-page labeled drawing of the main equipment used. There are brief biographies of drivers and the first steps that the reader might take to become a driver." --Library Media Connection

--Journal

"With scenes of soaring, crashing, speeding vehicles, these books' covers will easily convince young readers to give them a try. The readable prose has plenty to offer as well, with straightforward introductions to each sport. There's a surprising amount of detail in the simply written text, supplemented by excellent graphics and photos. Each volume offers a spread that clearly labels the main features of each vehicle; for example, paddle tires with deep grooves help mud-encrusted trucks race faster. Readers will learn about rules and strategy, races and venues, as well as the origins of the sport. Anecdotes and quotes enliven the text, with thumbnail sketches of participants ranging from well-known rally car driver Travis Pastrana to George Toone, who is blind but participates in antique tractor events. These well-written books will appeal to a wide audience." --School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
