As Dick Wallen writes in his introduction to this extraordinary book, "This is a celebration of the American board speedways and the Golden Age of oval track competition for which they were largely responsible."

It contains 850 black & white and color photos and illustrations, original art, and a foreword by Louis Meyer. Covering the years 1910 through 1931, it was voted Best Book by A.R.W.B.A. in 1991. "Not just a book, an art treasure!"  

Hard cover, 432 pages.

THUNDER ROAD: A Photographic Journey of Open Wheel Racing, Carnivals, and the Iconic Highways they Travel

by Tom Toutz

Travel along the Thunder Road with Ricoh and Tom, as they documented the parallel worlds of open-wheel racing and carnivals.

"Ricoh" is Tom’s camera: an old version, no fancy computerized stuff, just all manual settings with black and white film. Black and white tells a stark and real story that color cannot portray.

This unusual collection of Thunder Road photography is a compilation of race life, carnivals, and an aging network of highways and by-ways that he traveled through “the last golden era”, the decade of the 1990s.

[Toutz is donating all profits from the sale of this book to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame.]

Soft cover, 204 pages.
