The Writer Meets the Road--at 175 MPH
by Brock Yates
Da Capo Press 2004, 251 pages, paperback
No, not the road hog that does 5 MPH below the limit in the left hand lane or waits 10 seconds to proceed after the light goes green. This is Brock Yates tale of his quest to transition from an auto journalist to a Trans-Am driver in the 1970s. Follow him from racing school thru his semi-professional ride against drivers such as Dan Gurney and George Follmer. Join him behind the wheel at long gone tracks like Riverside and Bridgehampton. Also has a chapter on the famous Cannonball Baker Run.
