Talk Like a Race Car Driver (Let's Talk Sports!) (Paperback)
There's a lot more to auto racing than just driving around in a circle. From engine maintenance to understanding wind physics while drafting, drivers and their crews are smart people making decisions in the blink of an eye. Making tough calls in an instant is often the difference between taking the checkered flag for the win or settling for a finish in the back of the pack. With vivid graphics and full-color photographs illustrating the fast-paced world of race car drivers, readers learn how spotters help drivers through crashes and some of the technical terms used in the pits to help make racing champions.
