The Old Master: The Frankie Schneider Story Book
Dennis Keenan has done an extraordinary job in recapturing the long and colorful racing life of Frankie Schneider, the East Coast’s undisputed King of the Modifieds. The story starts at Flemington, NJ in 1947 in a battered ’37 Ford coach with numbers drawn in lipstick. It weaves year by year to the present, including Grand National, convertible, open wheel, and road racing adventures, all over the country. It ends up with Frankie’s surprise 80th birthday. It becomes crystal clear to the reader that, regardless what happens to racing in the future, there will never be another Frankie Schneider. Soft cover, black and white photography, 184 pages.
