John Sawyer, a native Ohioan, is a life-long follower of American open-cockpit auto-mobile racing. After failing as a driver of “the topless machines,” he pursued his enthusiasm via the roles of “stooge,” fan and finally, journalist. The Dusty Heroes, his first book, is the result of a four-year-long writing and research project. However, in reality, its pages reflect countless years of devotion to the nation’s dirt ovals and the steel and flesh combinations so willing to challenge their collective dusty infinity. You will read about the men, machines and tracks that made up the world’s most exciting and challenging form of auto racing competition. As a dedicated follower of the dirt tracker’s way of life, Sawyer has gained confidence of drivers, owners and mechanics. This book mostly deals with the events and drivers who were racing from 1960 to date. After reading this work you’ll see that we have been living in a great dirt track racing era and have been treated to some of the most memorable personalities that have ever graced the dirt track scene.
