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.

Autocourse Official Illustrated History of the Indianapolis 500

Revised and Updated Second Edition Includes Tribute to Dan Wheldon

THE Indianapolis "500" is much more than merely the best known automobile race in the world. It is a cherished time-honored institution with a glorious history dating back more than one hundred years. Known to most as, quite simply, "The 500," it has been held every year since 1911, the only exceptions being 1917-18 and 1942-45, during the periods when America was involved in the two world wars. Steeped in tradition, it has meant many things to many people and has played an enormous role in the lives of human beings, perhaps even more so for the spectators and devotees than for the participants themselves. For over half a century, Memorial Day meant either trekking to the track or else ensuring that whatever other activity was planned for the day, a radio would always be within earshot. In more recent decades, settling down in front of the television has been added to the equation, while it is now the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend on which the extravaganza takes place, rather than on Memorial Day itself. But the feeling is the same. For the participants, it has been a nearly 100-year saga of dreams, innovation, ingenuity, bravery, triumph, and tragedy. Paupers became millionaires, young men from small towns and broken homes became international celebrities, and regrettably, some of them gave their lives. The "500" has endured world wars, depressions, recessions, political strife, and negative journalism, and yet it continues to draw massive passionate and emotional crowds, whose loyalty is rewarded with never-to-be-forgotten moments such as the finishes of 2006 and 2011, when Dan Wheldon snatched victory on literally the final turn. This, then, is the story of the Indianapolis 500 and how it came to be. This is the story of more than 100 editions of the race, interspersed with a look at some of the compelling personalities, some little-known facts, an attempt to document the origins of some of the traditions, and perhaps even to dispel a few myths. From Harroun to Franchitti, it's all here…

Rodger Ward

Superstar of American Racing's Golden Age

Author: Mike O'Leary

Publisher: Motorbooks International

ISBN: 0760321779

Category: Biography & Autobiography

Page: 160

View: 745

To generations of racing fans, Rodger Ward is a symbol of one of most-beloved eras in American racing. A two-time Indy 500 winner, Ward was curly-haired with a broad smile and twinkle in his eye. Although born in Kansas, he was raised and began racing in the busy Southern California midget scene. In a national championship career that stretched from 1950 through 1966, he won the title twice (’59 and ’62, the same years as his Indy victories). He competed at ovals from coast to coast and built a large and loyal group of fans. He ranks 9th all-time in laps led in the Indy 500 (2,955) and 8th in Indy car race victories. In his career he drove for many of the top teams, most notably the Wilke Leader Cards team owned by Ralph Wilke and headed by A. J. Watson. In addition to his championship efforts, he led a colorful life. He was an Army P-38 fighter pilot during WWII and early in his career the AAA stock car champion. Ward once rolled a stock car eight times during the Mexican Road Race. He competed in the "Race of the Worlds" pitting American cars and drivers against Europeans at Monza in 1958. He is known for his 1959 victory in a Formula Libre race at Lime Rock driving an Offy-powered midget, and then racing a sprint car in the US Grand Prix at Sebring. He was involved in the accident that took the life of Bill Vukovich at Indy in 1955--an accident that is one of the most well-remembered in Indy history and that had a huge impact on Rodger's life. This book contains recollections of Ward’s career and life from interviews with competitors, team owners, reporters and others who witnessed his prowess on the track, official racing photos, and exclusive photos and other content from the Ward family’s collections.
