Daredevils on Dirt
Sometime just after WW I, garage owner Leo Huenke traveled to Columbus, Ohio, to acquire an auto dealership for his New Bremen hometown. The automobile was in its swaddling infancy and the trip to Columbus was requarded by locals as a journey fought with peril. Leo had his eye on the future, however; and he saw clearly the future had a camshaft. Soon, Leo also had a speedway, conceived in his living room and carved into a picnic grove outside of town. There were two unusual things about the New Bremen Speedway: It was early, and it was in a town of about 1000 when most auto races were found in the larger cities. The New Bremen Speedway could draw 12,000 fans. Heinfeld begins his tale in Leo's garage & ends in September 1931 when drivers protested a change in the feature purse and fans erupted in an ugly riot that was hours long and destroyed the Bremen Speedway.

Echoes of Valley Thunder
“Echoes of Valley Thunder:
Remembering Debo Park Motor Speedway.”
Echoes of Valley Thunder by Rick Yocum
Relive the history of this quarter-mile dirt oval that was tucked along the Ohio River near the small village of Rayland, Ohio. From 1950 through 1965 race fans from a three-state area made the trek to Debo Speedway on Saturday nights to watch their favorite drivers compete in a variety of racing machines, from pre-war coupes referred to as “jalopies” or “sportsman” cars to ground-shaking fuel-injected super-modifieds. Plus meet the men who piloted the machines and hear, in their own words, what it was like to participate “back in the day.” Author Rick Yocum captures the character – and characters -of this long-ago era throughout 188 pages, highlighted by more than 90 photos and illustrations, many from never-before-shared family collections.

Indy Car of the 1970s
The spirit of innovation was still strong in the 1970s, which Ludvigsen calls "The Last Creative Decade" at the great Speedway. The turbocharged decade witnessed the extinction of the venerable four-banger Offy and the rise of the Cosworth V-8, which took Indy racing into the 1980s. A tire war and advanced aerodynamics saw speeds rise so sensationally that, as Ludvigsen says in his insightful introduction, "The 1971 pole-winning speed wouldn't have qualified a drive for the 1972 race!" Revealing intimate details of the last progressive and experimental decade at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, this book is a must for fans of the world's greatest motor race. Soft cover, 125 pages, black/white photos.

Langhorne! No Man's Land
Langhorne! No Man's Land. Book by Spencer Riggs. Langhorne Speedway, also known as the "Big Left Turn," was the world's toughest mile speedway from its inception in 1926 to its demise in 1971. The circular shape crated fast speeds with poor visivility due to the dirt and the unusual shape. Later the track was paved and the record speeds were just too fast for racing. A track where all forms of racing took place: stock cars, modifieds, midgets, big cars/sprint cars, champ cars, and motorcycles. In 1949 it hosted a NASCAR inaugural race in 1949. On the property a 1/4 mile track, a drag strip and a quarter-midget track also held races. World records were set and tragic accidents happened. This book documents the history of this great Speedway. Hard cover, 539 pages, index, photo index, & 881 pictures. Lee Osborne, Kelly Petillo, & Tommy Nicholson are all included in index.

Modified Stock Car Racing of the 60's & 70's
By Steve Kennedy. Soft cover, 127 pgs, b & w photos.
The 1960's & 1970's were an exciting period in the development of modified stock car racing. The era actually began in the early 1950's when fresh back from WW II, veterans and other men were looking for something exciting to do. What the crowds wanted to see were the stock cars. Early stock cars were crude and the races were run in slam-bang style. 1930's era coupes were plentiful in local junkyards and filled the local speedways with their gaudy paint jobs and crude modifications. Many speedways were built during the post war era with pavement tracks tending to crop up in the more urbanized areas of the Northeast and dirt tracks being more popular in the rural areas. A number of the dirt ovals were former horse racing tracks. Before long, the junkyard coupes began to develop into the beautiful calssic racing machines that constitute "the golden era" of modified stock car racing of the 1960's and 1970's.

NOVI - Volume Two: 1961-1966
by George Peters & Henri Greuter, volume 2: The Andy Granatelli Years (1961-1966) Soft cover, 257 pages, 208 black & white pages. Volume II details the continuing saga of the world famous Novi race cars from their sale to the Granatelli brothers in 1961 through temporary retirement after the failure to qualify for the 1966 race and their definitive retirement in 1968. By 1968, the fabled front engine cars were no longer considered competitive due to the evolutionary changes in Indy car construction. The dramatic chages began with the appearance of the rear engine Cooper/Climax car in 1961 and extended through the success of the English built Lotus. The Granatellis countered with four wheel drive to tame the powerful, superchared Novi V-8 engine. Yet, it was not enough to withstand the rear engine revolution. Thus ended the resurrection of the Novi as a feared Indy competitor.

Novi V-8 Indy Cars
Reprint Release...November 2011 by Andy Granatelli, Ludvigsen Library Series 1941-1965. Soft cover, 128 pages, 115 black & white pictures. Few cars of any kind have exuded the charismatic appeal of the great Novi V-8 racing cars that competed at Indianapolis. With its centrifugally-supercharged four-cam V-8 engine the Novi was a power prodigy in all its incarnations. First a front-wheel-drive car, it earned a reputation for wicked handling by killing two of its drivers. But the Novis were so fast -so often- that more racers were always willing to take them on. Though a Novi never won at Indy, these magnificent cars are fondly remembered by all enthusiasts.

The Historic Manzanita Speedway In Phoenix
Phoenix’s Manzanita Speedway, the last of the big dirt tracks located near the central corridor of a major metropolitan area, is now gone. The track opened in the early 1950s when Jack Holloway, president of the Arizona Jalopy Racing Association, along with Avery Doyle and Gene Gunn, set about convincing Rudy Everett and Larry Meskimen to convert their unprofitable dog-racing operation into a quarter-mile dirt track. On August 25, 1951, Everett and Meskimen beamed with excitement as Manzy opened to an overflowing crowd. They had tapped into America’s post–World War II craze for automobiles and found their own Lost Dutchman Gold Mine in the process. Manzanita Speedway dominated dirt-track racing in Phoenix and was heralded as one of the top five dirt tracks in the United States. Manzy became an integral part of the racing culture in Phoenix, and its sale and closure in 2009 created a sense of lingering disappointment.
