Many have called him the greatest dirt-track Sprint car driver of all time. This exciting biography of Tommy Hinnershitz, by veteran novelist/sportswriter Gary Ludwig, is a superb account of the life and times of this racecar driver who became an auto-racing legend. The hardcover book is a fascinating history of the Sprint car, telling how it evolved, beginning during the first few years of the 1900s, to become the true American racecar. You'll read about the drivers, mechanics, owners, and promoters who spent their American ingenuity and willpower to invent, innovate, and engineer the development of the automobile through high-speed rough and tough competition. You'll learn more about the early champions, including Ted Horn, Joie Chitwood, Jimmy Bryan, Johnny Thomson, and many more. They were Hinnershitz's rivals during a career that began in 1928 and spanned five decades. Racing and winning on the dusty dirt horse tracks at state and county fairs across America earned Hinnershitz a chance to race against the best drivers, and eventually a chance to race in the Indianapolis 500.
