"As cars became more sophisticated, the cost of supporting a team had skyrocketed. In an effort to increase purses paid by racing promoters and win lucrative TV contracts, a group of owners formed Championship Auto Racing Teams in 1978. This book details the fight over control of Champ Car racing before reunification in 2008"-- Provided by publisher.
