Fans have seen it all in 64 years of racing at Stockton 99 Speedway. The quarter-mile bullring on the east side of this rowdy port city in Northern California has been the site for 44 divisions of racing, from the Jalopy division of the 1950s to the all-time quickest lap in speedway history, which was wheeled by Johnny Brazil, a legendary local lead foot whose hot laps in a Super Modified fire breather on the night of June 1, 1985, left a normally boisterous gathering hypnotized in jaw-dropping silence as the scoreboard logged quick time after quick time, finally dipping under 12 seconds before bottoming out at 11.899. Stockton 99 has served as a stepping stone for a future Daytona 500 champion (Ernie Irvan) and as a Saturday-night getaway for local hot shoes who saved their pennies just to keep their rods running for the one thing they loved to do on a Saturday night: race. The old track flat-lined in 2006--at the age of 60, stricken by development--but was shocked back to life in 2009 and again is hosting races in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series and the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West.

It began as a rodeo arena with bucking broncos entertaining an annual gathering for the Placer County Fair in Roseville, California, about 10 miles east of Sacramento. The rodeo grounds eventually gave way to a different kind of horsepower in 1955, when a dirt track was built. The original Roseville Speedway later became All American Speedway. The surface was paved in 1972, and three years later, its signature race, the Rose Classic, was born. Future NASCAR drivers Ernie Irvan, Mike Skinner, and more visited the track. The Rose Classic went away in the early 1990s, but NASCAR Whelen All-American Series action lives on each year.

Located in the Sandhills region of North Carolina, Rockingham Speedway opened in 1965. The legendary Curtis Turner made his return to NASCAR® with a victory in the track's inaugural event in 1965, while local favorite Benny Parsons clinched the 1973 championship here. A 1994 victory at Rockingham clinched that year's NASCAR championship for Dale Earnhardt. It was his seventh title, tying Earnhardt with Richard Petty for most in the sport's history. The facility formerly known as North Carolina Motor Speedway and respectfully nicknamed "The Rock" experienced a rebirth under the direction of new owner Andy Hillenburg. Rockingham Speedway showcases the rich NASCAR history of this North Carolina track.

"Beat Whitey Night, the Knockout Game, flash mobs, flash robs, and black-on-white crime-or as one social worker put it, kids just "blowing off steam"--Are evidence of the persistent racial violence in modern-day America. More shocking, though, is the willingness of authority figures and the media to deny, ignore, explain away, and condone this violence. In this latest edition of 'White Girl Bleed a Lot', award-winning reporter Colin Flaherty breaks the code of silence on the explosion of racial violence in more than one-hundred cities since 2010 and makes an undeniable case for one of the largest and most underreported problems facing American today"--Page 4 of cover.

This new edition of Mike Davis’s visionary work gives an update on Los Angeles as the city hits the 21st century. No metropolis has been more loved or more hated. To its official boosters, "Los Angeles brings it all together." To detractors, LA is a sunlit mortuary where "you can rot without feeling it." To Mike Davis, the author of this fiercely elegant and wide- ranging work of social history, Los Angeles is both utopia and dystopia, a place where the last Joshua trees are being plowed under to make room for model communities in the desert, where the rich have hired their own police to fend off street gangs, as well as armed Beirut militias. In City of Quartz, Davis reconstructs LA's shadow history and dissects its ethereal economy. He tells us who has the power and how they hold on to it. He gives us a city of Dickensian extremes, Pynchonesque conspiracies, and a desperation straight out of Nathaniel Westa city in which we may glimpse our own future mirrored with terrifying clarity. In this new edition, Davis provides a dazzling update on the city's current status.

From the best-selling novelist of the American West, comes a novel of romance, danger, and life along the trail. After his first successful venture of moving 2,500 cattle along the infamous Chisholm Trail, Adam Brite couldn’t resist the allure of a second drive. To prepare for his greatest and most dangerous prospect yet, Brite begins purchasing cattle at every possible opportunity he gets and searching for an able crew to aid him in the arduous journey from San Antonio to Dodge City. He recruits a diverse cast of characters all left penniless after the Civil War: Trail boss and veteran driver Joe Shipman; Alabama Moze, the cook; Hal Bender, a friendly brute; The Uvalde quintet, a strapping group all under the age of twenty; and Pan Handle Smith, a striking Texas outlaw who never sleeps. As they begin their journey north, Brite looks over the vast western landscape and his men attempting to herd the thousands of cattle from afar. In spite of the awe-inspiring scene, he grows fearful that Indians or inclement weather may make the excursion too dangerous with such a limited amount of drivers. As Brite begins to doubt the operation, a mysterious, young drifter named Reddie Bayne rides into their camp, and Brite offers him a job. Shortly afterwards, two unwanted guests arrive at the camp searching for the boy, and Brite quickly realizes that Bayne is not what he seems. In this classic western tale by Zane Grey, raging rivers, powerful storms, stampedes, treachery, trail rustlers, and Comanche Indian raiders threaten the outfit and their stock along the trail. However, the greatest surprise lies right within the outfit, when an unlikely heroine appears—a young girl disguised as a cowboy.
