Speedway illustrated, at first glance looked fairly thick for your average magazine, but then as I flipped through it I realized why. I was faced with the typical half-page advertisement scenario that many car magazines seem to favor. I'm still a subscriber to this monthly magazine because each issue contains several interesting articles from the world of stockcars, but I'd much rather see less advertising within the pages.
This would have to be one of the best books about NASCAR out there that I have found to date. It is filled with information on everything that you could ever want to know about the sport like what makes the series differ, the rules, several top-10 lists, information on every track and so much more stuff than I could possibly do justice for. NASCAR® For Dummies® is a great tool for old and new fans alike. This paperback book is written by one of the Winston Cup's best drivers, Mark Martin and comes complete with pictures, charts and the highest quality of information I have been able to find to date.
I just purchased the Nascar Facts & Fun Daily 2003 Calendar before the new year and was not disappointed. Inside it were several driver's biographies, information on every track, a description about each of NASCAR's series and top-10 lists that feature the top ten drivers from each year dating back to 1949. The part that I find best about this calendar, is that I can learn a little piece of information each day and it doesn't require me to spend more than a minute to do so.
I bought the book called, "Wide Open: Days and Nights on the NASCAR Tour", about a year ago. I had fully expected this book to be a tough read, because being the kind of person I am, I read very little more than the writing on the outside of my cereal box in the morning. That said, I can honestly say that I enjoyed reading through this book. It was fast paced, but what I think gave this book its extra flair was the fact that it was written by someone who didn't start with a particularly large interest in NASCAR.
For about $70, there are watches available that digitally contain the schedule for the Winston Cup Series. The watch contains information such as, track location, race time and even what network will broadcast the program. An alarm can also be programmed to play the American National Anthem at the start of each race.
For around $130, you can purchase a complete bed in the bag for your favorite driver. The sets include a reversible comforter, fitted sheet, flat sheet, bedskirt, two shams and two pillowcases and are typically decorated with a picture of the car, the car's number, NASCAR logo and/or relica autograph. Available in most bed sizes.
As a subscriber to Stock Car Racing magazine, the first thing that I noticed was the high-quality look of the book. Not only that, inside were fabulous color photos devoted to the cars and driver's of the sport themselves. Even though the entire magazine is not in color, it is still a great find because of its interesting articles and driver interviews. This magazine isn't "America's No. 1 Selling Auto Racing Magazine" for nothing. The only fault that I found with this magazine were the advertisements, though there were much fewer then in other magazines on the same subject that I have encountered.
