I've been working away on GO FAST. BE SMART! the latest of my RED RACECAR SPEED READERS.
It follows Tyler Means, the hero of my first two SPEED READERS: RACING JUNK and TURN RIGHT TO GO LEFT. In RACING JUNK, Tyler starts out patching a racing kart together out of a frame he finds in a pile of scrap metal. He then proves his skills and talent not only racing on road courses but, in TURN RIGHT TO GO LEFT, on a dirt oval he'd never even thought about.
GO FAST. BE SMART! will give him a chance to race a "real racecar," a dirt midget like the ones he loves to watch on TV. He'll actually meet some of the midget hotshoes that my original young-adult novel, THE RED RACECAR. introduced to more experienced readers. So, a reader can finish all three SPEED READERS and then move up to the RED RACECAR books.
By then they can go racing!
