KIRKUS REVIEW

Spectators and devil drivers alike are out for ""chills, thrills and spills"" in exhibition auto racing. Fascinated by cars, his main ambition to construct the engine smack in the middle of one, Bryant Rose (""Rosey"") travels the dangerous speedways along the West Coast in his revved up Triple T with as rough and tough a gang of performers as ever existed. Always tempting death, this fearless crew satisfies the screaming crowds whereever they go. Rosey is disturbed however by a reporter's insinuation that this type of organization may encourage reckless driving among youths, and it is this influence that affects the boss' decision to adopt a safety theme for next season's tour. The authors take great liberties even with ""Americanese"" in translating conversation and hot action scenes into tough slang. These guys don't kid around!
