I've just read D.G. Stern's book - Stabbing Along the Straightaway.
It's clear that he loves vintage racing.
He has a great understanding of the characters that have passion for the sport and the cars that they race.
I enjoyed the book immensely.

Auto racing is a dangerous sport. Everyone knows that. Sometimes people are even killed-usually drivers
So the death of driver, Charles William Tyler III wasn't totally unexpected, except that he was stabbed in the back- in bed-in his motor home-at the Citrus Grove Raceway.
