Top fuelers, funny cars, super stocks, pro stocks, and fuel-altereds are all included in this magnificent look back at the evolution of drag racing from the 1950s to today. Each chapter examines the history of a different class. Robert Genat's modern color photography of these landmark cars is accompanied by imagery from the NHRA archives and the stories of the legends who built and drove the cars on dragstrips across the nation -- people like Garlits, Prudhomme, Melvin Heath, and others. The American Auto Racing Writers and Broadcasters Association has selected American Drag Racing as its top auto racing book for 2001!
