Product Description

From the Back Cover

Auto racing is the biggest spectator sport in the United States. No month of the year passes without a race being held somewhere in the country - north, south, east, or west. "Racing is everything" (as Jeff Gordon said after he won the first-ever Brickyard 400 stock car race); this sums up the feelings of fans and drivers alike about this high risk, high-excitement sport. Steve Baker's images capture both the excitement and the personal element of this sport, with a focus on the race car driver as athlete. He gives us interesting candid photos of many of the great names, old and new, in racing today, including Mario Andretti, Gary Bettenhausen, Dale Earnhardt, Bill Elliott, Emerson Fittipaldi, A. J. Foyt, Jr., Harry Gant, Jeff Gordon, Robby Gordon, Roberto Guerrero, Ernie Irvan, Dale Jarrett, Bobby Labonte, Nigel Mansell, Sterling Marlin, Mark Martin, Rick Mast, Rick Mears, Richard Petty, Bobby Rahal, Willy T. Ribbs, Ricky Rudd, Ken Schrader, Jimmy Spencer, Lyn St. James, Danny Sullivan, Al Unser, Jr. and Sr., Rusty Wallace, Darrell Waltrip, and many others. A must book for all auto racing fans.

Ordered signed copy to give to Mr. Baker's family. Older pictures but was first of three books he published since 1995. Great shots of cars and drivers. Forward was written by Tom Binford not Bixford as stated.
