I see the four-volume set is going for about $150. What a steal!

There is NOTHING like these volumes when it comes to learning about NASCAR history. If you say you enjoy NASCAR's history and don't have these books, I have to question your sincerity. Here's what I posted about volume 1. And, honestly, the review works well for all four of these books, as well as Volume 5, the next four years (1990-1993).

If I could've gotten all four books for $150 at one time, I would've done it in a heartbeat. Here's the review I was talking about....

There is nothing like this of its kind in NASCAR history. This is one of five books created by the author that looks at the first 44 years of NASCAR history in the premier level of the sport.

Every season begins with a pretty nice and detailed summary of the season. Usually it will involve driver labor strife, or the construction of new tracks (like Daytona Int. Speedway) or just the stories of that season about drivers. Some are very good. Some are just boring because maybe too much is included. But if one is to error, putting too much is the side to error on.

But then comes what I think is the masterpiece of this book. EVERY SINGLE race in the top circuit is detailed with the actual boxscore of the race. They aren't huge. Usually there are about 4-5 paragraphs and most pages (these are hardcover binded books the size of 8*11 paper) will have about 1 1/2 races on a the two-column page, or about three races for every page you open up to. The boxes tell you the race name (if there was one), the track, the number of laps scheduled, the location, the description of the track (.625-mile paved track for example), and the date of the race.
