Tycoons, Scorchers, and Outlaws charts how auto racing was shaped by class tensions between the millionaires who invented it, the public who resented their seizure of the public roads, and the working class drivers who viewed the sport as a vocation, not a leisured pursuit.

"A persuasively argued history of American auto racing from drivers as 'operatives' for wealthy owners to the sport becoming more broadly democratic. A fascinating class-based interpretation of a neglected topic in sports history." - Dr. John Springhall, Reader Emeritus at University of Ulster, UK, and author of The Genesis of Mass Culture: Show Business Live in America, 1840 to 1940 (2008)
