Informazioni sull'autore

Who is Jake Maddox? Athlete, author, world-traveler – or all three? He has surfed in Hawaii, scuba-dived in Australia, and climbed the mountains of Peru and Alaska. His books range from the most popular team sports to outdoor activities to survival adventures and even to auto racing. His exploits have inspired numerous writers to walk in his footsteps – literally! Each of his stories is stamped with teamwork, fair play, and a strong sense of self-worth and discipline. Always a team-player, Maddox realizes it takes more than one man (or woman) to create a book good enough for a young reader. He hopes the lessons learned on the court, field, or arena and the champion sprinter pace of his books can motivate kids to become better athletes and lifelong readers.

He knew a lot of kids would enter. But he figured he had a good chance anyway, since he loved NASCAR so much.

He’d given it his best try. He had filled out the form right away and sent it in that very same day.

I think NASCAR is the best sport around! Peter had written. You have to know how to handle a car. You have to understand engines, tires, and tracks.

NASCAR is more than just knowing the rules. It’s about knowing the mechanics of cars and racing, too.

With my love for cars and racing, I think I’d be an excellent member of any pit crew.

It wasn’t hard to explain why he loved NASCAR. The hard part was waiting to find out if he’d won. What was taking the selection committee so long to make a decision?
