Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "The Race: Inside the Indy 500 examines in words and pictures this highly evolved auto-racing spectacle, which is hosting the 100th running in 2016. Author James McGuane has spent ten years working to capture the history of the Indy 500, which is loved my millions, and create a "top-to-bottom" and "start-to-finish" look at this heart-racing extravaganza. The author has used both camera and notepad to dive into the exclusive domain known as "Gasoline Alley." McGuane addresses topics including the painstaking engineering of the cars; the high-stress training of the drivers; and the split-second actions of the race-car teams to keep the vehicles in meticulous condition. Indy's past, present, and future are all revealed here. McGuane's unrestricted access to racing greats, both past and present, offers a dazzling view of the racing life. He has developed and nurtured close contacts with senior Indy officials, drivers, and others connected to the race. Perfect for the avid motor-sports fan, this book includes interviews with many racing favorites, from Al Unser, Sr. to Parnelli Jones, Bobby Unser, and more"-- Provided by publisher.
