"Fuel & Guts"
This is the story of how Top
Fuel drag racing started, told by those who lived it. An insider
from the beginning, author Tom Madigan draws on interviews with
builders and racers like Mickey Thompson, Tony Nancy, Tommy Ivo,
and Tom McEwen, to name just a few. Their words, and those of
others such as engine builder Ed Pink and chassis builder Kent
Fuller, give readers a real sense of a lost, and truly thrilling,
world. This is Top Fuel drag racing of California in the 50s
and 60s, and these are the racers who made its name. Fuel and
Guts recreates a time of passion and pure adrenaline--a time
before accountants and corporations saw a winner in drag racing.
In sidebars, drivers like Don Garlits and Shirley Muldowney tell
what it was like to leave home and try to make it on the Californians
home turf. You werent really a winner until you beat the guys
who started it all. And in this book, readers meet these winners
and feel once more an excitement now gone forever.
