High Performance: The Culture and Technology of Drag Racing, 1950-2000
JHU Press, 2001 - 417 стор.
A first-hand history of the daring sport of drag racing, from the earliest legal drags run on rural airfields to the spectacular - and sometimes tragic - careers of drag racing's most daring innovators. Robert C. Post, a former racer himself, was an eyewitness to many of the episodes he describes. He has interviewed many of drag racing's legends and superstars, such as Pappy Hart, who opened the first commercial strip in Santa Ana, California, in 1950, and Florida's Big Daddy Don Garlits, the first person to define himself as a professional drag racer.
