The Complete Idiot's Guide to NASCAR
by Brian Tarcy (Paperback - June 2001)

I was born and raised near Cleveland, Ohio. I live in Massachusetts. These are not exactly NASCAR hotbeds and yet I am the author of "The Complete Idiot's Guide to NASCAR."

I learned that if you can drive a car, you are a fan of NASCAR - you just may not know it yet.

If you check out my book and watch a few races you'll look at your own car from a new perspective. I promise. I didn't know I was a fan of NASCAR until I became one. And then it was an "Oh, I get it" moment.

"Fast cars." Yes, my book is about those two little romantic American words and so much more.
