KENNY'S GARAGE by Kenny Wallace

Kenny Wallace



Kenny Wallace won the first race he ever entered in 1982. After winning that first race, Kenny decided that his place in racing was in the driver s seat. In 1986, he joined the ASA ranks winning Rookie of the Year honors. Kenny is the youngest of the three Wallace boys, and racing was a household reality before any of the boys could drive a car. Kenny is the co-host on NASCAR Raceday, NASCAR Victory Lane, and NASCAR Coverage on FOX Sports 1 each week. With his competitive battles on the racetrack and popularity on television, he has become one of the most sought after drivers in NASCAR racing for sponsor endorsements and speaking engagements. Kenny is a driver that is well respected by owners, drivers and sponsors throughout the garage area and racing community. Almost any weekend, you can find him getting back to the roots of short track racing in his #36 dirt modified race car. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

 I am in a family of racing fans.  It is rare that we miss any kind of racing on TV.  This book by Kenny Wallace gives some information about  routine maintaining of your car at home. A few pictures would have been helpful. Some of the information is very helpful for those who sooner or later will have to face, such as jump starting your battery or changing a flat. Many good tips.    The subject of buying and selling cars along with doing minor body repairs is also talked about.  This is the first half of the book.  The second half is on much harder topics. This isn't for the person that doesn't know much about cars.  Most of these topics are complicated and I didn't understand half of it.   This would be more for someone with a lot of knowledge of cars and they way they work.   Not only that but what about the many tools, expensive tools, it takes to do these repairs.?  Some of the topics are repeated time and time again. Again in the second half, pictures would have been beneficial. Would have been better to me if the editing had been better, much better.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Waldorf Publishing and the author in exchange for my unbiased and honest view.

I would give this book 3 STARS.
