Motorcycle Drag Racing: A History by John S. Stein
There is a line in a Lovin’ Spoonful song that says, “It’s like trying to tell a stranger about rock ‘n roll.” Motorcycle drag racing is a bit like that. To those who follow it, the sport makes perfect sense. To those who don’t, it makes none at all. This book is for both. At 244 pages and nearly 3 pounds, this book is quite large. With so much to explore, it had to be. Organized motorcycle drag racing began nearly 60 years ago, and an incredible amount has happened since then. While much of the change has involved the machinery-and the book discusses it in great detail – it is the people that make the sport so fascinating. And in the book, more than 500 of them are discussed
