Swamp Yankee: The Racing Life
of Jim Jorgensen



by Walt Scadden

“Swamp Yankee” is the story of legendary crew chief and engine-builder Jim Jorgensen’s epic journey from Riverside Park Speedway in Agawam, Mass., to the National Championship Indy Car Series. From the late 1950s to 1969, Jorgensen and his crew crisscrossed the country, racing his innovative stock car, sprint, and Indy Car designs with standout drivers like Gene Bergin, Buddy Krebs, Bill Brown and Denny Zimmerman.

Progressing from countless bullrings and county fair tracks to some of the most revered venues in the country such as Langhorne, Phoenix and Milwaukee, and on to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Jorgensen made his name and left his mark. His journey had its share of detours and heartbreaking disappointments, but it provided him the formidable education needed to compete at the highest level of racing in the country and earned him induction into the New England Auto Racing Hall of Fame.

Jorgensen’s was a time of open trailers and pick-up trucks, where a handshake was the measure of a man. His story is a compelling account of the ingenuity, passion, triumph and hardship that defined the legendary competitors of racing’s greatest era.

Racing Safely, Living Dangerously

By Bill Simpson
with Bones Bourcier

The autobiography of Bill Simpson as told to Bones Bourcier. (Bill and Bones followed this volume up in 2012 with Through the Fire, S-1224)

Safety equipment pioneer Bill Simpson has saved the lives of more race drivers than any other man in history.

Through the Fire

by Bill Simpson with Bones Bourcier


More than a decade ago, motorsports safety pioneer Bill Simpson published Racing Safely, Living Dangerously, intended to be both a memoir of sorts and a guided tour into the topsy-turvy world of big-time automobile racing. The book, which drew widespread acclaim, chronicled Simpson’s race-driving career – from the streets and drag strips of Southern California all the way to the Indianapolis 500 – and took readers along for a raucous ride as both the author and his beloved sport matured. Well, sort of.

That book was meant to cap a wonderful career, but it turned out the Bill Simpson story was still unfolding. Through the Fire, the recently-released sequel, tracks Simpson’s tumultuous journey since 2001, from the death of his friend Dale Earnhardt and the emotional storm that resulted, to his battles with sanctioning bodies and various governing groups, to his thoughts on racing’s old-school heroes and the new-school kids still on their way up the ladder.

And, as those who know Simpson might expect, from time to time a good old-fashioned race party breaks out on the book’s pages, and the readers are invited to pour a drink and pull up a chair.

In Through the Fire, Bill Simpson pulls no punches. In fact, he throws a few. It’s a must-read book for anyone interested in American motorsports.

Carroll Shelby: The Authorized Biography

by Rinsey Mills

When Ford wanted to add some spice to its newly introduced Mustang pony car, it turned to former racer Carroll Shelby. The resulting cars proved to be the definitive performance Mustangs of the muscle-car era. The choice made sense. Shelby had proven himself a force to be reckoned with on the racetrack, in the tuning shop, and in the auto industry. By the time Ford hired Shelby to create a racer from its Mustang, the man was already an automotive legend.

Early in his career, Shelby’s accomplishments as a racecar driver included breaking land speed records at Bonneville and winning Le Mans in 1959 with teammate Roy Salvadori. As a team manager, Carroll was part of the FIA World Grand Touring Championship as well as the Ford GT victories at Le Mans.

When his health forced him to give up racing in 1960, Carroll turned his attention to design. He had a vision of a racecar made from a lightweight European chassis with American V-8 power.

The result is what is considered to be perhaps the greatest sports car and one of the fastest road cars ever constructed: the Shelby Cobra.

Shelby’s legacy continues to impact the world of racing and automobile design. Even today, Ford’s premier Mustang carries the Shelby name and iconic snake logo.

This book is the complete, authorized biography of Carroll Shelby including images from Shelby's personal collection. It's the story every enthusiast has always wanted to read.

Fast Lines

by Pete Lyons


Pete Lyons grew up on the track, and has covered auto racing since the early 1960s. His pieces couple his enthusiasm for motorsports with clear insight into the factors that make cars and men champions.

Whether he's screwing up his chance to learn how to drive fast from Dan Gurney, or taking a lap while precariously wedged into a Can-Am car with Peter Revson at the wheel and at full noise, Lyons picks up on the details that help us understand and appreciate what makes racing great.

Fast Lines is a collection of 55 of Pete's columns, “Fast Lines,” from Vintage Racecar Magazine. The book includes looks at cars and racers from Formula 1, Can-Am, Indycar, and endurance racing, most of them racers who competed in the 1960s and 1970s. He also includes glances into the contemporary Mario Andretti, mellowed hardly at age 60, and events like Sebring, Goodwood, and the Monterey Historics.

Miller’s Time – A Lifetime at Speed

by Don Miller with Jim Donnelly

Net proceeds from the sale of this book have been pledged to support the prevention of child abuse and neglect in the Carolinas.

It takes brains, character and extreme courage to succeed at the pinnacle of racing. Don Miller has all three qualities in spades. Roger Penske entrusted him with starting two NASCAR teams, developing their talent, getting the sponsors and turning their drivers into superstars. Rusty Wallace and Ryan Newman both have Don Miller to thank for much of their early success at the highest levels of NASCAR. Along the way, Miller was responsible for key innovations in racing tires, insulating materials to protect drivers, and aero packages. He can even take credit for inventing the souvenir trailer of today.

A professional drag racer in his teens and twenties, Miller has always been the hardest of hardcore racers, on every kind of track. That passion has never diminished, even though racing brought him to the very brink of death.

Don Miller has never before told his full story. Miller's Time, the memoirs of this hot rodder, racing titan, gifted businessman and car collector who just plain loves people, is one of the most compelling, rewarding and harrowing racing books that you will ever be lucky enough to read.

Stuntman!: My Car-Crashing, Plane-Jumping, Bone-Breaking, Death-Defying Hollywood Life

by Hal Needham

“I wrecked hundreds of cars, fell from tall buildings, got blown up, was dragged by horses, and along the way broke 56 bones, my back twice, punctured a lung and knocked out a few teeth…”.

So says Hal Needham, on the flap of his new book. In addition to his fame as a Hollywood stuntman and director, directing classic like Smokey and the Bandit and The Cannonball Run, Hal Needham set trends in NASCAR (the first team owner to use telemetry technology) and car collector. His Skoal-Bandit race team was one of the most popular NASCAR teams ever. He was the financier and owner of the Budweiser Rocket Car (now in display in the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum), the first land vehicle to break the sound barrier, traveling at 739.666 mph. A must for movie and racing fans alike!

McQueen's Machines: The Cars and Bikes
of a Hollywood Icon


by Matt Stone


He made movies best remembered for their wild car chases, mad motorcycle dashes, and hair-raising races, but no one forgets the man at the wheel--Steve McQueen, the King of Cool. No other Hollywood star has been so closely linked with cars and bikes. It is this connection that McQueen’s Machines explores, giving readers a close-up look at the cars and motorcycles McQueen drove in movies, those he owned, and others he raced.

From the 1968 Ford Mustang GT Fastback he drove in Bullitt (in the greatest car chase of all time) to his Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow in "The Thomas Crown Affair", from the Triumph motorcycle of "The Great Escape" to the Gulf-Porsche 917K he actually raced in "Le Mans", the cars and bikes that McQueen made famous in films make another appearance here.


The book also features the cars, motorcycles, and even airplanes that McQueen owned over the years, including two motorcycles that fetched record prices at a recent auction: a 1937 Crocker "Hemi-head" V-Twin and a 1920 Indian Powerplus Daytona. Among notable cars profiled in the book are a 1959 Porsche Speedster bought new by McQueen, a 1957 Jaguar XKSS, a 1963 Ferrari 250 Lusso, a 1953 Siata 208S, a 1965 Ferrari 275 NART Spyder, and a 1969 "Le Mans" Porsche 911S.

With a foreword by Steve's son, Chad McQueen, and a wealth of details about the stars amateur racing career, his movie stunt work, and his car and motorcycle collecting, McQueen’s Machines draws a fascinating picture of one outsized man’s driving passion.

Newly released in soft cover on glossy paper, many color and B&W photos, 184 pages.

Mark Donohue:
His Life in Photographs


by Michael Argetsinger

In the stunning follow-up to his award-winning biography Mark Donohue: Technical Excellence at Speed, author Michael Argetsinger recreates Donohue’s remarkable life through hundreds of brilliant photographs. Many of these pictures were provided by the people who were closest to Donohue: his family, friends, and Penske Racing teammates. The book also offers some of the best work by the top motorsports photographers of the era, who deliver brilliant images of Donohue with a dazzling array of race cars, and intimate shots with his team and fellow drivers.

These photos not only offer a uniquely personal view of a champion, but also reveal details of the cars that he drove and the preparation that went into racing each of them. These include everything from his earliest home-built efforts to the highly refined Camaros, Javelins, and Porsches that made him a champion and American icon in the 1960s and 1970s. Each image is accompanied by Argetsinger’s detailed, insightful captions. And Mark’s contemporaries—including his Penske teammates and fellow drivers Dan Gurney, George Follmer, David Hobbs, John Surtees, and Bobby Unser—also offer their recollections and commentary.

Even readers who are already familiar with the life and legacy of Mark Donohue will be dazzled by this stunning collection of images and memories. Mark Donohue: His Life in Photographs vividly presents the life and times of an American racing hero.

Phil Hill: A Driving Life

by Phil Hill
with photography by John Lamm


Though he’s best remembered as the first American Formula One champion and a three-time Le Mans winner, Phil Hill (1927-2008) also enjoyed a long career as an automotive writer. Hill was a regular contributor to Road & Track magazine, writing vivid, first-person accounts of his experiences driving everything from the earliest horseless carriages to the most modern road and race cars. Phil Hill: A Driving Life gathers the best of these stories, each of them accompanied by dazzling photographs from Hill’s friend and colleague John Lamm.

The book starts with the very first car, a three-wheeler built by Karl Benz in 1886. From there it’s on to a classic Packard touring car from 1915, the first-ever MG, the revolutionary rear-engined Auto-Union D-Type, and many others. Several chapters find Hill reunited with cars that played a significant role in his racing career. From the 1950s there’s the Jaguar XK120 that gave him an early win at Pebble Beach in 1950 and the Maserati 250F that he drove in his first Grand Prix at Reims in 1958. A decade later there are the Ford GT40s he helped develop, 1963’s ill-fated ATS 100 Grand Prix car, and the unique, high-winged Chaparral 2F that yielded his last professional victory at Brands Hatch in 1967. And there are also Phil’s recollections of other great drivers he drove with and against, including Juan Manuel Fangio, Stirling Moss, Olivier Gendebien, and Dan Gurney.

Whether he’s writing about a rare vintage race car, a hard-fought victory, or an old friend, Phil’s essential qualities of intelligence, curiosity, and integrity always come through. Phil Hill: A Driving Life provides a unique perspective on automotive history from a true champion.

A gorgeous, hard-cover coffee-table book, 192 pages with 173 black & white and full-color photos.

To Indy and Beyond - The Life of Racing
Legend Jack Zink

by Dr. Bob L. Blackburn


Jack Zink is a legend in the world of car racing. As a driver for more than twenty years, he won stock car races on dirt tracks, accumulated trophies in off-road dune buggies, and even set a flying mile speed record in a 1957 Pontiac he designed and built for the early NASCAR circuit. As a team leader, mechanic, and engineer, he pushed the limits of technology with his innovative designs for cars that were lighter, lower, and more powerful. Even his failures, such as the attempted use of a turbine engine in a car, opened new doors that others rushed through in the pursuit of speed and durability.

Perhaps he is best remembered for his victories at the greatest track in the world, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and the greatest race in the world, the Indianapolis 500. From 1950 to 1967, Jack walked shoulder to shoulder with the greatest team owners, mechanics, and drivers in racing history. Twice, his team won the coveted Borg Warner Trophy, in back-to-back Indy victories (1955 and 1956).

But Jack was much more than a pioneer in car racing. He raced sailboats. He raced motorcycles. He also was a skilled engineer and businessman, ultimately building not one but two companies into international giants that still dominate the combustion industry with burners, flares, and incinerators that greatly reduce pollution. Even with all these accomplishments, Jack was most proud of his service to his community, especially the Zink Ranch, a 33,000-acre nature preserve in the Osage Hills of Oklahoma that will perpetually provide open space in an increasingly crowded and urban world.

This biography weaves all of these stories into a portrait of Jack Zink. Along the way are the friends and family members who were part of the adventure, as well as the challenges and opportunities that drove him forward. Here is the story of one amazing man who lived by a simple code: "The man who wins is the man who tries."
