Review & Giveaway: The Ultimate NASCAR Insider's Track Guide by Liz Allison


This is a must-have for NASCAR fans. Did you know that NASCAR is the second most popular sport, right behind football? Like many fans, I am curious about what goes on beginning, during and after each race. Liz has the answers all laid out for even the most dedicated fans.

I liked Liz's attitude toward the sport. I didn't get the feeling that she was just writing a book. She was actually interested in the subject and made sure that she not only received the answers for her readers but also for herself.

App Description:
Everything you need to plan your race weekend—at any track on the circuit.

From dining and shopping to lodging and tips for getting driver autographs, this is the app that every NASCAR fan needs. The home screen features an outline of the track layout; click on a car to get to listings of restaurants, hotels, and area attractions. There is a how-to for ticket purchasing, tips on what you can [and can’t] bring in to the grandstands, instructions for using a garage area access pass, and much more.

The app also includes a section on what to do in case of an emergency, whether it’s you or your four-legged friend. All phone numbers will automatically dial when clicked for any establishment listed [iPhone only].

You can even e-mail friends to recommend it and buy other circuits right through the app. Each app includes an overview of the track experience, an area map link, and plenty of helpful advice that will make your weekend at the race a memorable experience.


Below are links to different speedways for the app – in which you can purchase it:
