9780060394059: The Fast Lane: The History of NHRA Drag Racing

A cloud of vaporized rubber at the starting line, flaming exhaust headers, and a roar like nothing you've ever heard before. Drag racing's machines are the fastest race cars on earth -- capable of accelerating to 330 mph in less than five seconds. And for tens of thousands of drivers and crew members and millions of fans, this is the most exciting sport in the world.

From hot rods speeding across abandoned airfields, salt flats, and dry desert lakes to nitro-burnin' Funny Cars rocketing down the strip to the cheers of thousands of fans, The Fast Lane chronicles fifty years of heart-pounding drag racing and the organization that made the sport what it is today: the National Hot Rod Association.

Unlike any book ever published on drag racing, The Fast Lane captures the heart and soul of NHRA. With more than 230 bold, full-color photographs, this lavish book showcases the achievements, the glory, the drivers, the fans, and the highenergy spectacle that make NHRA drag racing a national passion. The Fast Lane is also a dazzling photographic celebration of innovative technology -- dragsters and Funny Cars burning nitromethane; stock cars, trucks, and motorcycles on high energy spectacle that make NHRA drag racing a national passion. The Fast Lane is also a dazzling photographic celebration of innovative technology -- dragsters and Funny Cars burning nitromethane; stock cars, trucks, and motorcycles on highoctane gasoline -- machines whose power and fury are truly unmatched. If you love drag racing, you must have this book!
