Stand On The Gas!



Used, Fair condition, Limited quantities. “To win, you gotta stand on the gas.” Stand On The Gas! Is the story of sprint car racing- the hairiest, most fearsome, noisy and passionate form of automobile racing ever. In a sprint car race, about 30 stampeding monsters of up to 1600 pounds each, stuffed to the roofs with fire breathing bored-out putting out as much as 600 horsepower chase and bash each other around a rutted and often treacherous half-mile dirt tracks at speeds approaching 110 mph. They are called “sprint cars” because there are no pit stops. No frills. The typical race lasts no longer than twenty minutes. The drivers say there is nothing like it in the world. The fans are fanatics. Stand On The Gas! puts you right in the cockpit with the drivers- a proud breed of men who pit their lives for paltry sums in the most dangerous wheel-to-wheel racing in the world. You’ll find yourself cheering wildly with the fans . . . sweating out the 90 mph “broad-slides” with the drivers . . . sitting nervously with wives and mothers . . . and following the careers of the most wonderfully defiant personalities in racing today. You’ll understand why some of the greatest names in racing including Mario Andretti, Parnelli Jones, A.J. Foyt, and Roger McCluskey, learned how it’s done in the most demanding, satisfying, racing of all: sprint car racing.
