Daytona  From the Birth of Speed to the Death of the Man in Black, Hinton, Ed
10 Hinton, Ed Daytona From the Birth of Speed to the Death of the Man in Black
NY Warner Books 2001 0446526770 / 9780446526777 1st Edition Hardcover Fine Fine Book 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall Photographs 
Fine 1st edition, 1st printing hardcover in glossy, unclipped pictorial dj in new mylar. Not exlib. No names, tears or soil in the 380 pp text. "This is Daytona Speedway not as a structure of concrete and rubber but as a sort of roaring motorsport Mount Olympus, "the carotid artery through which nearly every essential element of motorsports has passed through at one time or another." Some elements pass through more loudly and colorfully than others; historical accounts of speed trials on the beach at Daytona in the 1920s and '30s, for example, may not excite today's spectators. The names and stories that stick are NASCAR names of the last 20 years: "man of the people" Richard Petty, tough guy Cale Yarborough and the late hero, Dale Earnhardt. Hinton's vignettes are sharp and his connections are exciting, split-second glimpses of NASCAR culture." Publisher's Weekly.
