What separates this drag racing trivia from comparable material is that you don’t just get a tidbit of information. You get a thorough story about a lawsuit that resulted from an accident at the Cajun Nationals or the reasons behind a group of Ford racers boycotting NHRA weight breaks and jumping ship to the Mopars.
Working its way from the ‘50s through the ‘80s and beyond, 1001 Drag Racing Facts is far more than well-researched. It’s excruciatingly detailed. For easy scanning, all the drag racing trivia is broken into convenient sections. The chapter on Eliminators, for instance, has its trivia separated into subjects like Gassers, Modified Production, Altered and Econo Altered and even a More, More, More section.
We believe that everyone — drag racing fan or not — will learn something interesting in 1001 Drag Racing Facts.
