Guide to Northern & Central California Raceways
I have been to a lot of the dirt tracks and drag strips in this book, and several of the asphalt tracks as well. This book is amazing! Thanks so much to the author for doing this for all of us in Northern California who love racing. The photography is fantastic and truly captures what racing at local tracks is really like. Northern California racing is alive and well and Saroyan Humphrey's book showcases that like nothing I've seen lately. It makes me want to get out to the track!
