Summary: Super Stock takes a look at what was, in the 1960s, the most popular class of drag racing -- factory Super Stock. It traces the evolution of the cars, the engines, the rules, the personalities, and many of the teams, from Super Stock's beginnings in the mid-1950s through the 1960s and the era of the Super Stock 409s, Ramchargers, 421 Pontiacs, and 406 Fords.Included are first person accounts of what drag racing was really like in the early 1960s: how the manufacturers controlled the competition and the results of the races; how the sanctioning bodies attempted to control the manufacturers, who in turn simply sidestepped the rules. Appendices include the major event winners and rules defining the classes, as well as information detailing the engines and chassis competing in Top Stock categories. For automotive enthusiasts and historians. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: From the late 1950s through the 1960s, the same cars that drove people to work and the grocery store were actively raced on Sundays at drag strips all across the country. This was the exciting time when the factories of Ford, Chrysler, and General Motors competed against each other under the slogan, "Win on Sunday, sell on Monday." Author Larry Davis experienced the period firsthand from the driver's seat, as he competed in various Stock and Super Stock categories between 1960 and 1970. Read this completely illustrated, year-by-year history of Super Stock racing from 1955 to 1968, including first-person accounts of action from match races to the Nationals, and appendices featuring all major event winners, NHRA rules, and the engine/chassis combinations.
About the Author: Larry Davis was a hobby drag racer between 1960 and 1970, competing in various Stock Modified Production and Super Stock classes. He participated in the 1967 and 1969 NHRA National Championships in Indianapolis, IN.
