Apex Legends is partnering with Kyle Larson and Chip Ganassi Racing to create an awesome new children's picture book and coloring book! You can guarantee you'll receive a copy when the book launches by pre-ordering today! See "Launch Timing" tab for more info on timing for completion.
NASCAR driver Kyle Larson has been in love with racing his entire life; he was only a few weeks old when his parents first took him to the track. From the time Kyle drove in his first race at the age of seven, he’s driven “anything, anywhere, anytime,” and today he is one of NASCAR’s top drivers! “Kyle Loves Racing” uses Kyle’s real-life experience to educate and entertain kids about different types of racing, while inspiring them to chase their dreams and never give up. Kyle's first Cup win at Michigan in 2016 and his 2017 Fontana win are featured in the story.
From dirt track to endurance racing to his current NASCAR racer, just about everything Kyle has driven is featured in this book! Want more insight into the book, and how it differs from Apex Legends' other driver-focused story, "Josef, The Indy Car Driver," read this blog post!
Signed Copies: There has been a lot of interest in the "books signed by Kyle" option. The first allotment of 100 books signed by Kyle is sold out. I am not sure when more will be available, but it likely won't be until after the first of the year. If you want to take advantage of the pre-order special or get a book for the Holidays, I recommend you purchase now; otherwise stay tuned for an announcement once more are available!
Age Range: Best enjoyed by kids ages 4 & Up; the companion coloring book (sold separately) includes text for younger kids.
Product Details: Full-color, 56 page hardcover book printed on high-quality glossy paper. Printed and bound in the USA.
Donation Program: We are working to finalize a charity partner for this book; our plan is to donate 10% of proceeds from book sales.
Here is what Kyle has to say: “I was really excited a few months ago when the idea of doing a kid’s book came up, and I’m really looking forward to the finished product being released later this year. My parents got me interested in racing when I was really young, and along the way they taught me a lot of great lessons through racing that have helped me on and off the track. This book hopefully will be something that can help get kids excited about racing too and maybe even teach a few good lessons. I have quite a few young fans, so to be a part of a project that reaches out to those folks is pretty exciting for me.”
Launch Information: The book has been completed and approved by all licensing partners. Production is underway and I should be receiving my first run of books late November. All pre-orders will ship immediately upon receipt to fulfill orders prior to the Holidays. The first 100 books ordered will be signed by Kyle Larson as promised; I am working to schedule this book signing once I have a final delivery date.
Shipping Note: If you order any other Apex Legends products with your pre-order they will all be shipped together when the "Kyle Loves Racing" books arrive. If you need them sooner or have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
