Summary

Best-selling author Sharyn McCrumb returns to the heart-racing world of NASCAR with Once Around the Track.

But every woman has a different plan to get the car into the fast lane, and it's not long before the women collide-both on and off the track.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Beguiling…A heartwarming story that celebrates loyalty and love.” Richmond Times-Dispatch
“The concept of this book—an all-female NASCAR team)is a good one, and McCrumb provides plenty of well-researched, behind-the-scenes details about the sport…A very readable story about a year in the life of a NASCAR team.” RT Book Reviews
“Nicole Poole delivers the narrative parts with just a hint of a drawl. Further, she aptly plays each of the women who revolve around Badger—love-struck engineer Taryn, devious publicist Sark, tough crew chief Grace, slimy manager Melodie. Poole especially brings out Badger’s naïveté and ‘aw-shucks’ niceness. There’s lots of detail about racing and the NASCAR circuit, which adds to this satisfying…drama.” AudioFile
“McCrumb’s detailed descriptions of the pit crew at work are so strong you can almost smell the motor oil.” Booklist
