About this title


"Open Wheel" feature writer. Bob Gates, has captured the complex life of one of auto racing's most popular drivers. Jim Hurtubise beat the best sprint car drivers of the California Racing Association then the best in IMCA before taking on the greatest drivers in the world. When he won his first National Championship race in only four tries, he was promptly named "Hercules" by the sports writers. When the racing drivers most feared enemy, fire, was claiming Ed Elisian, Eddie Sachs, Dave MacDonald, Fireball Roberts and Bobby Marshman, Herk overcame his terrible burns and made a most remarkable return to the sport he loved. Dick Berggren called this book the best open wheel racing book in this decade.175 photos.
