Nashville, TN (PRWEB) January 30, 2007
The roar of the engines. The sight of the checkered flag. The smell of burning rubber. These are just a few of the sensory experiences which have made automobile racing one of the world's most popular spectator sports. But another activity has captivated diehard racing fans, one that combines their need for speed with their passion for food, fun and friends. Hardly a spectator sport, tailgating is a literal feast for the senses, and although this growing phenomenon takes place outside the track, it is considered by many to be an integral part of the racing experience.
From the author who brought sports fans the only tailgating resources endorsed by the American Tailgaters Association, comes a brand new book specifically for racing fans. Written by tailgating expert Stephen Linn, "The Ultimate Tailgater's Racing Guide" (Rutledge Hill Press, ISBN: 1-4016-0334-3, Price: $14.99, March 2007) is an indispensable resource for those who love to take their party on the road, racing-style. Filled with tips on gear, attire and etiquette, mouthwatering recipes, tailgating setups, and track guides for nearly 300 venues coast-to-coast, "The Ultimate Tailgater's Racing Guide" equips racing enthusiasts with the tools they need to tailgate like a pro.
"Racing tailgaters -- whether in RVs, tents, or the backseats of their cars -- share a special bond most of their football tailgating cousins don't," writes Linn. "The sense of community among racing tailgaters runs as deep as their feelings about Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt, Funny Cars, and Top Fuel dragsters. For many, it runs deeper. There are life-long friendships forged in these parking-lot neighborhoods. This book celebrates these communities. It will also help you throw the best party in the parking lot!"
Whether a devotee of Nascar, NHRA, IHRA, IRL, Champ Cars or all of the above, racing aficionados of all backgrounds will be encouraged to take their tailgating to the next level after mining gems of wisdom from this fun and insightful guidebook. Regardless of location, be it Talladega, Bristol or Pocono, one thing is sure -- Linn will help racing fans develop tailgating memories to be savored long after the last lights in the grandstand have been turned off.
A former award-winning reporter and news anchor, Stephen Linn is the author of "The Ultimate Tailgater's Handbook," "The Ultimate Tailgater's Travel Guide" and "The Ultimate Tailgater's Racing Guide." Linn is also the tailgating contributor for About.com and Athlon Sports. Linn makes his home in Nashville with his wife and twin daughters.
