PAVED TRACK DIRT TRACK PAVED TRACK DIRT TRACK author
Lew Boyd chose Old Bridge and Nazareth to exemplify the heart of East Coast
modified racing. One asphalt and the other dirt, the two notorious speedways
both ran on Sunday nights, usually open competition. Each attracted road
warriors and outlaws from Maine to Florida, as well as a dedicated core of
homegrown heroes. Boyd conducted more than 100 interviews with living legends
like Mario Andretti, Frankie Schneider, Pete Frazee, Wally Dallenbach, Tommy
Hager, Gil Hearne, Bob Pickell, and Buzzie Reutimann, as well as capturing the
stories of many whose lives ended tragically on the race track, like Jackie
McLaughlin, Otto Harwi, and Mike Grbac. Then there are tales of the feisty
Eastern Bandits like Ed Flemke and Denny Zimmerman and the NASCAR “drop ins”
like Ned Jarrett, Bobby Allison, and Fireball Roberts, who came to test their
mettle on these challenging tracks.
PAVED TRACK DIRT TRACK covers the evolution of racing from just after World War
II right up to the 1990s. The formative years were gritty, colorful, and
dangerous, presenting a kind of racing that would never be permitted or possible
today. The book includes 330 evocative photographs, many borrowed from private
scrapbooks and collections and never before published. Soft Cover
