by Robert B. Jackson
illustrated with photographs
Drag racing cars are the fastest cars on wheels. Accelerating furiously, they reach speeds of almost two hundred and fifty miles per hour, covering more than the length of four football fields, in less than six seconds.
Robert B. Jackson covers this explosive sport from dubious street competition of the 1940's to its present well-organized status. He describes the cars and details of their construction; profiles the best-known drivers; and summarizes the annual racing schedule.
An experienced writer on automobiles and automobile racing, Mr. Jackson brings to life the loud and gaudy cars, the skillful drivers and mechanics who perform under constant pressure, and the drama of the competition that attracts thousands of enthusiastic fans to exciting wheel-to-wheel duels.
