About this title


RACING TO AMERICA BACK COVER Why even consider going through the agony and expense of shipping an entire racing operation to the other side of the earth? For the same reason Americans went to the moon. For one thing, the grass is greener - humans share a natural enticement to the unobtainable – in this case, time travel. And many just aspire to leave a mark illustrating how hardcore they are. Racers can never resist a challenge. Beating the home team on their own sacred turf offers an irresistible satisfaction for those of a competitive bent. Plus, the whole adventure is one hell of a lot of fun. These, and even more compelling motives, are explored in Racing to America. Slip on your reading goggles and strap in tight... “Whether he’s behind the wheel of a vintage drag car or his computer keyboard, it’s always pure hot rodding with Scotty Gosson. And there’s no way to know what’s around the next curve. Scotty gives you raw, real hot rod tales and like a good hot rod, they have an intangible character about them that is difficult to forget.” Gerry Burger – Rodders Digest “Scotty Gosson has been involved in racing and hot rodding in almost every possible way – fabricator, engine builder, street racer, drag racer, salt racer, tech inspector and announcer... This vagabond-cum-Forrest Gump of hot rod discourse has his fingers firmly on the pulse of the racer’s plight everywhere. He just plain gets it and is as much a fan of it as he is a part of it!” Adam Sorokin – Driver, Champion Speed Shop Top Fuel Dragster “I had the chance to see Scotty’s writing on the Adam Sorokin article before it got chopped up in the cutting room and I’m very impressed with his work. I can’t wait to get a copy of the new book!” Tom Jobe – Crew, The Surfers Top Fuel Dragster “I was born around passion for fast cars. I grew up around the environment of speed. That’s why I feel like I’m home when I’m with the Gossons.” Ryan Cochran – Jalopy Journal
