A track-by-track guide for seasoned fans and newcomers alike, offering an overview of each track's classifications, an opinion on the unique flavor of each place, a summation of what sort of racing action can be expected, and a description of options for where to stay, eat, sit, and what to watch for. Special insider tips from the drivers, engaging anecdotes, and practical advice help readers make the most of every visit.

From moonshine runners tearing down Appalachian backroads to high-tech, high-dollar teams racing for millions at gleaming new tracks in Dallas and Chicago, NASCAR is a uniquely American rags-to-riches success story. While other big-league motorsports series have seen declining attendance and television ratings, NASCAR continues to soar, pulling standing-room-only crowds to the track every weekend and millions more on TV. And there's a reason for that phenomenal growth: These guys are like folks you know, driving cars that look like the ones you see every day. So each weekend, hundreds of thousands of fans pack up their coolers and cameras, their sunscreen and scanner radios, and head for the high-banked tracks that stretch from California to New Hampshire. Sure, they can watch the races in the comfort of their living rooms, but hardcore race fans know that there's nothing like the visceral thrill of live racing.
