About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: American Road Racing: The 1930s.

Publisher: Garnet Hill Publishing

Publication Date: 1995

Book Condition: Brand new 9 x 12 hardback.


400 pages. 600 illustrations. Road racing in the United States was born during the 1930s with the founding of the Automobile Racing Club of America. It began on crude home-built dirt circuits with cars that were little more than the ancestors of today's go carts. By the end of the 1930s, ARCA races on public streets and roads evolved into a sport that attracted the finest examples of European road racing machines and one-off American specials. Packed with more than 600 rare period photographs and illustrations, this exciting 400-page book by historian, author and racer Joel Finn tells the fascinating tale of our homegrown road racing and the 1936 and 1937 Vanderbilt Cup races. The research is exhaustive, based largely on original documents from the archives of ARCA and lengthy interviews with its members and active participants in the sport. 32397D.
