Finding the Groove features enlightening interviews with 27 leading drivers of the 1970s. From NASCAR and Indy all the way to drag and street racing, author Hal Higdon explores American racing in all its forms.
In each chapter, Higdon asks the drivers: "How do you go fast around a racetrack?" Find out how “The King” Richard Petty has collected a record number of poles and top ten finishes and how Mario Andretti’s mastery over the “groove” made him one of the sport’s most legendary drivers. Learn from Mark Donohue, Al and Bobby Unser, Bobby Allison, Don “the Snake” Prudhomme, and others on where to pinpoint that sweet spot on the track in this throwback edition of Finding the Groove.
This book is the first in a new series from Octane Press called Retro Reads. The collection reissues popular titles and introduces them to a new audience. Motorsports enthusiasts will delight in familiar classics and discover new, dynamic narratives about legendary drivers.
"Higdon is able to coax great answers from the racers, resulting in insights you would never expect." – Logan Gray, Sports Car Market
