Motor-racing fans who enjoy bumper-to-bumper NASCAR trivia might want to take a look at The Great Book of NASCAR Lists (Running Press). Co-authored by Speed Channel's John Roberts with M.B. Roberts, it delves into compilations of the most controversial races, the most bizarre trophies and lots of racing stats.
It also has a list of the decal-mad sport's oddest sponsors (from Viagra to Boudreaux's Butt Paste) and a lengthy accounting of the many practical jokes played between Dale Earnhardt Sr. and Rusty Wallace. (Like the time Earnhardt left an opened can of sardines under Wallace's seat on a 100-degree race day at Darlington.) - Tom Weir, USA Today
