All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value!
The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at
deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small
mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to
a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged.
Please consider this before ordering.

Gr 3–6—Simple writing (a compound sentence is a rarity), clear action photos, and colorful pages liberally sprinkled with "Track Fact!" boxes and definition bars for highlighted terms make these titles attractive. They are quick reads for young NASCAR enthusiasts and older children with reading problems. Included in each is a "Cup Career Statistics" chart, a glossary compiled of those highlighted definition bars, and directions for accessing FactHound. Falling neatly between the simpler "NASCAR Champions" series (Rosen)—think Connor Dayton's Kasey Kahne (2008)—and the more demanding "Race Car Legends" (Chelsea House), these books will pull a checkered flag from NASCAR enthusiasts who read too competently for the former and are not up to the demands of the latter.—Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY[Page 110].
