IMSA: 1969-1989
This behind the scenes book tells the inside story of how IMSA became a global powerhouse in just a few short years. It covers John Bishop’s early life, his years at the SCCA and tells the story of how IMSA grew from humble beginnings in 1969 into the Camel GT Series, a circuit that became the most popular form of professional sports car racing in the world. Interviews with many of the top drivers, team owners, car builders and others from the era helped shape this book, which also includes hundreds of never-before-published photos. 

"It’s the deep dive IMSA has needed in book form, and even the unsavory bits — the narco years — are covered." –Marshall Pruett, RACER

"With so much domestic race history packed within, you'll be hard-pressed to put it down." —Matthew Litwin, Hemmings Muscle Machines

John Andretti’s life was driven by family and fueled by a passion for racing. In Racer, Andretti candidly recounts how these powerful forces shaped a diverse professional driving career. The honesty and character that defined Andretti’s life offer a behind-the-scenes look at racing at all levels full of lessons in racing and life supplied by this fiery and fiercely competitive driver.  

Racer is an intimate look at racing at the highest levels as well as life lessons from one of the world’s most celebrated motorsports family. The powerful narrative includes John’s substantial charity work, and the story of how he contracted colon cancer at age 53 and turned his affliction into a public awareness campaign.
