Boogity, boogity, boogity....

In celebration of the 2010 NASCAR season, my dear author friend Amy Clipston and I are running a contest!

Leave a comment on this blog and/or Amy's ( before the green flag drops on the Daytona 500 on Sunday and you'll be registered to win three NASCAR-related books. The covers for the books are shown below.

Let's go racin'!


The Bud Shootout is the opening salvo for the start of the 2010 stock car season. It usually consist of 75 laps around a 2.5 mile oval in Daytona Beach, Florida, the hallowed ground for any racing fan.

The line up consist of eligible cars picked from points by team and owner garnered the year before. Once chosen, the drivers gather on the track for a blind draw party. Here the drivers pick their starting point the night before the race..

This year 24 drivers qualified to wait for the green flat to drop.. When the smoke cleared, Kevin Harvick won, driving his Chevrolet beneath the yellow checkered flag due to a wreck which nearly took out the whole field. Right behind him, Kasey Khane came in second.

Speed week begins! So as Darryl Waltrip says, "Tighten those belts and let's go racing boys!"

Order from:

Lacey Fowler is distraught when her father and stepmother are killed in a car accident while traveling from Daytona International Speedway to their home in Mooresville, North Carolina. Her anxiety is heightened when champion stock car driver and known playboy Reese Mitchell inherits part of Southern Racing, her father’s prestigious team. Suspecting her father was murdered and his race team is in trouble, she turns to Reese in desperation for help. Uniting their pieces of the company, they band together to solve the crime and save the company. Can Lacey save the company without losing her heart? The stakes are high when she is Betrayed.

Amy Clipston's story "Kevin Harvick's Gift of Caring" is featured in the new Chicken Soup for the Soul: Nascar: 101 Stories of Family, Fortitude, and Fast Cars, which will be available in stores February 16.
To buy Chicken Soup for the Soul

Janet Duplain wasn't sure what to expect when she decided to make the trek down to Florida and the Daytona 500. She'd surprised her husband Ed with the trip only he died unexpectedly and now this is the last thing she can do to honor his memory.
Steven Brock loves NASCAR so when he rescues a woman outside the gates and finds she knows nothing about racing he plans to enlighten her. What he doesn't expect is the sparks to fly between them. Her auburn hair and deep green eyes are like a beacon calling him in. Only Janet is still carrying the torch for her dead husband. Can Steven turn on the charm and woo her convincing fair Janet that love is always better the second time around?
