It's Christmas Eve morning on the track, and the fans are filling the stands to watch a special holiday race. Everything is going according to plan, but as the drivers begin to enter the track, a new car pulls up, ready to join the Christmas competition. It's Santy Claus, and he's prepared for anything with his tinsel-covered racecar and his red, fireproof suit. On his helmet are paintings of delicious fudge and bon bons that look good enough to eat. Santy's traveled across the globe and back, all in one night, but this Christmas Eve, here on the track, old Saint Nick is in for a challenge. With peppermint candies and jingle bells rolling around the car, Santy must outrace the best drivers in the league. Colorful illustrations bring the story to life and add to the excitement as Santy must overcome flying debris to win this race. Exciting and hilarious, Racecar Night Before Christmas is a perfect addition to the Night Before Christmas Series and any holiday collection.
