Located in Newburyport, Massachusetts, Coastal 181 began publishing racing books in 2001. We are dedicated to offering great books, DVDs, and artwork to the motorsports community.

We have been involved in racing since the early sixties, when we fielded our first #181 race car. (Some photos of 181 friends HERE). We have now become, we believe, the most active book retailer in oval-track racing.

In print and in commentary and photos on our website, we cover open-wheel, NASCAR, and short- track competition, as well as drag racing, road racing, hill climbing, motorcycling, hot rodding, and more. We are always seeking unique and colorful manuscripts and video footage to include in our listings. We are especially interested in the history of motorsports and in stories of ordinary people achieving extraordinary things.

Please give us a call at 877-907-8181 toll free during business hours if you have any questions.
