Trace Bonham has just scored an amazing ride—a brand-new, corporate-sponsored Super Stock. The sleek, custom-built machine runs like a dream. He’s set up with a professional crew, a top-of-the-line car hauler, and a great big paycheck; it all feels too good to be true. Of course, there’s a price for everything. Trace has to turn over the car he started in, his dad’s Street Stock Chevy, to another driver. He’s also no longer welcome at his hometown speedway—or by the girl he adores who runs it—since his new team made it all too clear they think it’s a hayseed operation. So what? There are bigger and better speedways, and more girls, in Trace’s future. But can he handle the speed of success?
“The novel is likely to appeal to youngsters who normally shy away from fiction.”—School Library Journal
“Weaver draws from his auto-racing experience to continue Trace’s story from Saturday Night Dirt (2008) and to bring to life the small-town, dirt-track racing world. Racing action, sharp dialogue and solid characterization make this a good bet for young sports fans.”—Kirkus Reviews
“There is no doubt that Weaver knows his way around stock cars, and he puts the reader in the middle of the action.”—VOYA
“Weaver offers outstanding descriptions of the races, putting readers in the center of the action.”—Booklist
