Pennsylvania native Tommy Hinnershitz has been called by A. J. Foyt and others the greatest dirt track Sprint car driver of all time. Interest in his life and career and the history of American automobile racing, is worldwide. In 1939 he won the first feature race ever run at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. He went on to win over 100 feature races over a career that spanned five decades, primarily racing on the state and county fair dirt horse tracks. He raced in the Indianapolis 500 four times. He was inducted into the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame and the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame.

And now, veteran sportswriter Gary Ludwig has captured the life and times of this auto racing legend. This beautiful hard cover 252 page book, with 20 pages of photographs and a full color dust jacket with photos, includes the story of his life and amazing career, a history of sprint car and Indianapolis car racing, stories about drivers, their mechanics, officials, promoters and many of the speedways Hinnershitz and his contemporaries competed on.

The book also includes Hinnershitz’s complete race-by-race statistical record.
