John is a wonderful storyteller, and the book is comprised of a series of John’s stories as told to bestselling author Jade Gurss (BeastIn the RedDriver #8). The book opens with John’s memories of growing up as a member of auto racing’s famous family. His father, Aldo, is the twin brother of Mario Andretti. The book offers an intimate look at the interplay between these two men, and how their intensity and integrity shaped John’s life.

Beast was the nickname of a shocking new race engine unveiled for the 1994 Indianapolis 500.

In the award-winning book, Beast, bestselling author Jade Gurss chronicles the subterfuge and debunks the myths about this legendary power plant that persist twenty years on.

​This revised trade paperback edition of BEAST features new commentary on the technical development as well as analysis of the purchase of IMS by Roger Penske.
