Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bristol Dragway was carved into an East Tennessee

mountainside in 1965. In the more than four decades

since, the track known as "Thunder Valley" has carved its niche as a world-class facility in professional drag racing. Located adjacent to Bristol Motor Speedway, the dragway's well-earned nickname stems from the unique acoustic experience fans get when the power of unlimited racing engines echoes off the nearby hillsides. Bristol Dragway retraces the track's early history, its role in shaping the sport, and its return to prominence after an $18 million renovation in the late 1990s. The book features images of drag racing's greatest stars and chronicles decades of the sport's most memorable moments.

About the Author

Author David M. McGee has witnessed more than 25 years of Bristol racing history as a photographer, journalist, race official, and announcer. He is the coauthor of Images of Sports: Bristol Motor Speedway.
