NASCAR is Coming
February 10, 2011
Hey all you NASCAR Fans out there! The time is almost here, only a few more weeks and we will be back to racing. I don’t know about all of you but around our house, the anticipation is building. We can’t wait to hear those engines fire up, and see what this year has in store for our favorite and not so favorite drivers.
Sprint cup will be starting February 12th with the shootout, the 17th with the duels, and the Daytona 500 on the 20th. Let’s also not forget that this year we will be getting two races here in Kansas, June 5th and October 9th.
So, if you are wanting to get caught up on all your stats and facts before the big day, come on in or go online and order some of our many NASCAR books, DVD’s or magazines. So, when that green flag drops, you’re ready with all the latest stories and all the past history.
Here's some of what the Library has to offer on the Daytona 500:
- Daytona 500 (videorecording) : 50 Years of the Great American Race
- Tales From the Daytona 500
- Daytona 500 : the Great American Race
- The Great American Gamble: How the 1979 Daytona 500 Gave Birth to a NASCAR Nation
P.S. Don’t forget to wear your favorite drivers gear when coming in to get your NASCAR items, we always love to see who you’re rooting for.
