SUPER STOCK ROOKIE is another fast-paced racing story by Will Weaver. This is the second in his MOTOR NOVEL series and is sure to grab the attention of reluctant teen readers - even if they aren't particularly racing fans.

Trace Bonham has been racing Street Stock for years on small town tracks throughout the northern Midwest. Now, it's possible that he might get a chance to race a new, top-of-the-line Super Stock car. All he has to

This motor novel was a very interesting non-fiction book! When I started the book I couldn't put it down because at the end of every chapter there was a clif hanger so I had to keep reading on. This book was so good I finished it in 1 day! My favorite part of this book was when Trace one his first super stock race and started getting into it and was being unstopable. When his crew team got him banned from his home track that part was sad because he couldn't see the girl he liked anymore besides ...more

I really like this it is interesting about his race life. The main character is Tracey. What made me read this kind of book is that my uncle he races late model and he won the national points and got a lot of money. The part I like in the book is he gets takes a test drives in a new car and he really like and explains it and that is what I like. The part I didn’t like is he doesn’t like a person and that person takes good things from him that can get him better.

Things that happen in the story

Success sometimes brings its own challenges, as Trace Bonham finds out when he wins the super stock tryouts at Rivers Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D., picks up a corporate sponsor and becomes a well-paid super stock driver. Throughout the reading Super Stock Rookie by Will Weaver I found that the book was hard to put down sometimes because it was too good. This book is about the main character, Trace Bonham, who went from racing his street stock to racing a super stock for a professional racing te ...more

Even if you're not a race fan and may not understand all the lingo, you'll be drawn into Trace Bonham's racing world. Author Will Weaver is a racer himself and his knowledge shows as he masterfully portrays the culture while also enriching it with an emotional story. Trace gains the opportunity of a lifetime when he is selected by a corporate sponsor to race their Super Stock. However there's a dark sense of Trace having sold his soul as conflicts arise. Corporate representatives treat Trace as ...more

Trace Bonham has been selected to try out to drive Team blu's brand new superstock, When he is selected he should be on top of the world. So why does it all seem a little strange and not quite 'right'. All of a sudden there is somebody else driving his street stock and he is having trouble finding anyone to talk to. There is also the question of how this car can possibly be so fast. I enjoyed this book however at the end of the story I was left with more questions than answers, in that regard I ...more

I just read Super Stock Rookie by Will Weaver.Trace is the main character of the story.Mel and her father are the owners of Headwaters speedway.There are a lot of race teams that have watched trace improve each race.Trace was offered to race for Team Blu.He got to drive a fast new race car,he team Blu also had a awesome pit crew for him.The main thing is to go fast to keep the racing spot.I recommend this book to most teenage boys that like racing as much as I do.

This book is about a guy who makes it on the racing team, team Blue. The girl he likes finds out and she starts to like him but gets mad that he is leaving. At first he really doesn't like his team. At the end he starts to like them. Then they start winning a bunch of races. I gave it 4 stars because its a good book but I dont like some charecters.

This book was awesome -- the racing details were right on the money (and exciting to read)! Weaver introduces more sources of tension into the plot that will probably set up the next book(s) without leaving the reader feeling like there are too many loose ends in this one.

I grew up in the Midwest, and had no idea I'd become a writer one day. However I gradually felt a need to tell my own stories. To explain, in writing, how I saw the world.

Today I'm a full time writer with 13 novels, many short stories, and two movie adaptations. I enjoy visiting schools and libraries, and sharing what I've learned about writing–and just hanging out with teachers and their students
