Book & Author description

Here is the promo blurb being used for the book:

George Campbell covered NASCAR for a variety of publications in the 1990s. In 1999 George recognized a void that he filled by starting his own newsprint publication, Busch North Scene. His goal was to cover NASCAR specifically in the northeast region. Within two years, George and the dedicated staff members had grown the paper into the number one selling NASCAR newspaper on newsstands throughout the northeast.

Busch North Scene: A Ten Year Retrospective recaps the racers, teams, and events that shaped the publication and the NASCAR Busch North Series during the 2000 decade. The book has fun and informative personal reflections from George and Busch North Scene staff members, as well as many of the personalities that made the series popular in the decade.

The book gives NASCAR fans from New England an inside look at the stars from the region during the late 1990’s and the 2000 decade. Within the books 330+ pages are over 125 photos mixed with personal reflections and amusing anecdotes on the drivers and events. Among the drivers covered in the book are Maine racers Ricky Craven, Andy Santerre, Joe Bessey, Tracy Gordon, Bill Penfold and Kelly Moore. NASCAR Champions like Mike Olsen, Dave Dion, Brad Leighton, Dale Shaw, Matt Kobyluck and Joey Logano are featured as well.

Multi-time NASCAR Busch North Series Championship team owner Steve Griswold (Grizco Racing) wrote the foreword for the book. NASCAR Champions Brad Leighton, Andy Santerre, Dave Dion, Mike Olsen and Matt Kobyluck are featured on the cover of the book.


  1. Hey Soup, I just finished up your book and it is awesome. I love the memories it brings back. The time at Watkins Glen when I was spotting for Kelly Moore up through the esses and Annette was scoring for Martin Truex Jr. and we didn't even complete a lap and we were both wrecked. That was a pile up to remember. Anyway thanks for the trip down Memory lane and a great job on the book.

  2. Just received my copy as a B-Day present from my parents, excellent read.

    Great job Soup, you should be very proud!

  3. Great book Soup! A job well done. I'm amazed how much info is in this book. Every time I open it I find a different interesting story or picture and have a hard time putting it down. I'll look forward to the second edition. Thanks for all your hard work. Joe & Lorraine Chamberlain, Caribou Maine.

  4. I really liked the last chapters with the stories of the people from the series. I enjoyed the whole book, but reading about those guys was very interesting.
