Mark Martin by Tara Baukus Mello


Mark Martin by Tara Baukus Mello

Even as a boy, Mark Martin loved going fast. First he rode a bike, then a motorcycle, and finally a race car that his father helped build for him - all by the time he was 15. Martin began racing on dirt tracks in his native Arkansas, moved on to asphalt racing, and never looked back. He has met with technical challenges, survived automobile crashes, and overcome personal tragedy. This new biography highlights Martin's more-than-30 memorable years as a race car driver. Featuring a reader-friendly full-color format, Mark Martin thoroughly illustrates how skill and determination have made the man known as Mr. Consistency one of the top NASCAR drivers in the history of the sport.


Clear and readable, the books contain detailed, action-filled accounts of pivotal races.
