Need an open wheel racing history book(s)

Post by The Utard » Tue Apr 09, 2019 5:03 pm

Does anyone know of a good book(s) on the history of open wheel racing in the US. Not F1, the history of US open wheel leading up to & including CART.

Autocourse's CART Official History 1979-1995 is the defacto bible...and each year after that in year book form until the demise for that top level AOW.

I don't recall a single book that covers it all...but there are many of the same compilations for each major sanction body over the years like AAA, USAC, NASCAR IMSA Indy etc sports cars etc. Spic mentions Oreo's book.....I did a google of US auto racing history and dozens of books popped up.

If a library still exists in your town, they could have dozens of books documenting it all. I used to go read them all the time....Good luck! What a great topic to research...

The tru vizzun of American Open-Wheel Racing was restored in 1996. The OW Heathens were liquidated later on.

What more do you need to know about OW history?

Give your kid your user name and password to this place. Me & Hugh will give yer boy a right fine edumacation. Spicoli can teach him about wimmens and the evils of drinking. Then when he sobers up, Mo can hose the vomit offin him and Rex will tell him about the good old days of open wheel. He'll be a gentleman and a scholar when you get him back. Honest injun.
