Many have called him the greatest dirt-track Sprint car driver of all time. This exciting biography of Tommy Hinnershitz, by veteran writer Gary Ludwig, is a superb account of the life and times of this racecar driver who became an auto-racing legend. This beautifully printed 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. Racing and winning on the dusty dirt horse tracks at state and county fairs across America earned Hinnershitz a chance to race in the Indianapolis 500. On the dirt he was there at the beginning, one of a handful of daredevil athletes, the champions who invented the broad slide; going in low and coming off high, or vice versa. After leading the way, setting the pace, and developing the style, Hinnershitz set himself apart from all the others; he went in high and stayed there. This history of his life and amazing career includes over 20 pages of photographs and his complete race-by-race career statistics. Hinnershitz was inducted into the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame and the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame. This first edition book is already becoming a treasured collector's item for thousands of Hinnershitz's fans.
